Vegans Rock Austin:

My name is Brendan Good, I am the Communications Director for the Vegetarian Network in Austin. This is a friendly CHALLENGE to enter your best vegan chili offering in the 21st annual Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cook-Off! I will be representing the VNA at the Chili Cook-Off with my chili. We'd love to have your group join us and bring out your own chili for a match-up against lots of teams from all over Texas!

The cook-off takes place on Sunday, November 15th at the historic Travis County Farmers' Market on Burnet Road in north Austin. For those of you who'd like to attend and taste all the chilis being made, admission is $7 adults, $3 children age 6-12, 6 and under free.

We are also VERY much in need of volunteers at this event- for which you will of course get free admission! We need help with the admissions table, setup, takedown, helping with the judges, etc etc. If you are interested in signing up for a shift, please email volunteer@veggiechilicookoff.com.

I see that yall are having a raw food potluck right now- well my understanding is that there is a "raw" chili team that has competed at the last couple of cook-offs we've had. Whatever kind of chili you want to make, if Vegans Rock Austin want to accept VNA's challenge, find a registration form at www.veggiechilicookoff.com, or call Liz at 921-1125. Let's get the chili ON!!!

YESSSS!!!!!!!  as many talented chefs as we have on this site, from professionals to amazing food porn bloggers, VRA should put its best brains together and show these dudes how it's done!

I don't know about you guys, but this is my favorite event of the year.

people who have never met me, I'll probably rock the Sriracha shirt again, it's becoming a ritual.  Please approach me and tell me all the nasty things you want to do to me.

Hey everyone, just one last update since we're inside of a week now until the chili cook-off.

For all of you thusly active on teh intarwebs, you can "become a fan" of the Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cook-Off by following this link: http://sn.im/chilifacebook
And if you're on Twitter, you can follow us at: http://twitter.com/lsvchilicookoff

Most importantly though, I wanted to put out one last call for volunteers- we've gotten a bunch but we could still use a few more, so if you've been meaning to put up your hand to help us out, or if you're just now finding out and like the idea of free admission for three or so hours of work, send an email to Nancy Woolley at: volunteer@veggiechilicookoff.com

Any help we can get would be great- we're going to need folks to assist with set-up in the morning and break-down in the evening, along with manning the admissions gate and other various and sundry issues that pop up.

One last thing I just want to mention, if it rains we WILL be indoors! So come anyway!

Thanks!

Due to extreme incompetance and just plain being a f%$^& dick, my boss scheduled me to work Sunday, and I cant get anyone to cover my shift, and we have a hotel full of people. AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!  So, if anyone is interested, I have the most incredible chilli recipe EVER, and if someone wants to make it for the Chilli cookoff, let me know, and I'll email you the recipe.

Who won the Cook-Off?  I voted for the "Survivor Chili"--super savory and chock full of huge Stonewall Jerky pieces!!  That ruled.

My favorite was the masala chili. It was really different, but incredibly delicious and very flavorful. I didn't taste all the kinds there, though...got too full after about 8 or 9. It was a fab way to spend the afternoon and we bought some awesome cupcakes and cookies to try later! Such a fun event!

Which chili did Molly make? Was she with an organization? Is she the older lady? I voted for Masala Chili. I loved it soooooooo much. There were lots of good chilis though.

I voted for the masala chili as well.  It was a nice departure from all the red chili powder.  I loved the consistency and the spice.  She won 3rd place from the judges and second in popular votes.  Not sure who got first place though.

i forgot to vote. i came around noon and ate, went home to take a nap, and came back at three. hahah. there were several chilis that i liked, though.

molly got second (she is mollyjade on the PPK forums), the masala chili lady got third, and first place went to quintesential chili (apparently they've won for years on end). i didnt even try the first place winner. oops.

edit: the booth theme winner was sunny day farms from san antonio, and i cant remember who won the "peoples choice" (having to do with who WE voted for).

I can't deny, Quintessential's is great. I've voted for them in the past though so I wanted to go for a different one this time.

the coconut curry (indian chili) was incredible. if you were at the masala chili table, it was right next to it. so good. i had a great time eating everyone's chili.
