Tasting chili at Verona culinary battle


VERONA (WKOW) -- Chili was the main event in Verona on Saturday for an annual Chili cook off fundraiser.

The Optimist Club held their battle for the best chili at the Verona Fire Station. People got a chance to see where the firefighters work, and also sample the secret recipes from some of the culinary competitors.

"We decided to get involved with it and found out that we had a great time doing it, we did it for fun, and we turned out a really good product that people seemed to like, and its just kind of evolved from there," says Chris Wilbricht, a Belleville competitor.

The event is sponsored by WKOW. Wake Up Wisconsin Weekend Meteorologist Ben Burkel got a chance to sample the chilis as he served as judge. 

Those stopping by could get some samples for $1, which goes to the Optimists.
