Five local chefs vie for the title of best chili in the 13th annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off

January 29. 2024

Some of the Cities’ top vegan chefs will be competing in the 13th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off. Join us on February 3 to sample their tasty chilis and rate them to help crown the winner. The competition will be from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Great Hall in Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota.

Last year’s champion, The Howe Daily Kitchen and Bar, will defend their title against four new competitors. La Cocina de Ana,  Mill Valley Kitchen, and Trio Plant-Based may be familiar to you from the Twin Cities Vegan Chef Challenge. Lulu Ethio Vegan Cuisine is a fresh addition to the local culinary scene. Get to know them while refamiliarising yourself with the tasty talents of our other competitors. May the best chili win!

With these diverse and talented competitors, it’s the perfect opportunity to discover the deliciousness of vegan chili. Alongside the samples, there will be additional servings of chili along with cornbread and chips. You won’t go home hungry! You’ll also have the chance to mingle with fellow animal lovers. Arrive early to ensure you can savor all the chili creations. As an added bonus, the first 100 attendees will receive a raffle ticket, entering them for a chance to win fantastic prizes.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of your dietary preferences. All food served will be vegan/plant-based (free from animal products, including meat, dairy, eggs, and honey). 

Tickets are $10 for community members and students are FREE. Get your tickets today! The event space is ADA-accessible.
