The Ultimate Chili Cook-off With Orlando Firefighters at Macy's!

While in Orlando, Florida, attending the 45th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest, we stopped off at Macy’s at the Mall at Millenia.  The Martha Stewart Collection of newly designed Enameled Cast Iron Cookware is being launched and to celebrate that event, we organized The Ultimate Chili Cook-off, which I hosted.  We invited four of Orlando’s finest Fire Stations to compete for the “Best Chili in Orlando” title.  Lucinda Scala-Quinn joined me as the official judge of each station’s recipe, taking into consideration the taste, consistency, aroma, color, and bite of the different chilies.  The four different and delicious batches were simmering away in my Enameled Cast Iron Cookware and I have to say that choosing the best chili was really hard, as they were all so good!
