AmCham Chili Cook Off 2023

August 30, 2023 | 16:00 ‒ 18:00

That’s right! This year, we have not only brought back our traditional Annual Chili Cook-Off after a 2 year break but took it to a new level!

6 teams came together to compete for the titles of the “BEST CHILI 2023” and “PEOPLE’S CHOICE 2023”. Over 70 tasters joined to try out various recipes presented at the event and vote for their favorite. We had some amazing chili recipes to taste this year – from mild to super hot! In addition to the spicy chili, we got to enjoy the craft beer tasting from TANKER BREWERY, ice-cold cocktails from VARBLANE and a variety of Coke products compliments of COCA-COLA BALTICS!

In the end, all teams, as well as the jury members and our winners have been awarded with generous prizes from our sponsors:



Our sincere congratulations to our 2023 winners:
