"Chili is my thing. I cook it a lot at home. I try to mimic what I find here at this cookoff. What a day! I might compete next year."
"I'm a salsa fan although I get into red chili. My daughter comes with me every year and we vote for our favorites. We picked the winner the last two years. We are getting good at this."
Jenna, Randall Manor
"We come every year. We are the first in line, or close to it. And we stay until the end. The chili is amazing. You can really taste the little differences between the cooks."
Sarah, New Dorp
"What can I say? The chili is unbelievable. We brought the kids and they went on the rides and visited all the houses. I love the history here. This is a perfect spring day."
John, Princeton, NJ
