Me, on the other hand, not so much. I follow recipes and they still don't come out!

I never joined a contest like this, but I did make the best meal in our local kids cooking classes (about 20 years ago...) The prize was a trofee made out of paper and a gold chef-medal (well it was actually made from plastic but it did look like real gold at the time )

$1000 recipe contest has just started!!!

I have done alot of local and east coast chef salons. I used to really get off on it, but the after hours scene really took its toll. I used to love the friendly compitition and the different things people would do. I haven't done it in 3 years or so, but would LOVE to do it again.

Welcome, Gloria. You may want to introduce yourself in the greetings and introduction forum. We would all like to know you. I'm a Floridian also, but I haven't heard of Trininty, Florida.

Hey, everybody. I am a new member to the forum and would like to find anyone who can help me with chili cook off rules - Memphis in May stuff. I know you probably are all thinking, "Oh no, not another Emeril-wanna-be!" Guess again!
I am a soon-to-be retire teacher whose son is a meat market manager for a large grocery chain that begins with Kro and ends with ger.
I want to know what a chili consists of according to standard rules. So far, I have not found this info online.

Welcome aboard, Pat.

Have you checked the Memphis in May website? The rules might be posted there.

Pat, unless they've changed it recently, MIM has always been about BBQ! That's not to say no other organization in Memphis puts a chili cookoff on, but not that I've heard of. Maybe local Memphians Chef Jimmy or Sharon T could advise about that.

I believe there's a famous chili cookoff in Terlingua, TX (Texan DC-ers please confirm) and probably loads of other places as well.
