Tempe vs. Phoenix Fire Depts Chili Cook-off:
Who will win this year’s chili cook off? Only you can tell us as you taste what comes out of the kitchen onto your plates. Tempe Fire Station # 273, located in the Hackett House’s backyard on McClintock, was the hands-down winner of last fall’s cook-off between three Tempe Firefighting Stations. Our guests were served each of three different chilis by the firefighters themselves. They voted and Station #273 won the top prize. The tradition continues this year with Tempe’s own #273 challenging Phoenix’s firefighters. Not only will the firefighters be cooking your chili, they will be serving you dinner throughout the evening — just as they have been serving our community throughout the years. And what chili doesn’t taste better paired with ice-cold beer? Join us to celebrate our very own firefighters as they dish up their fire house staple!
This class is $50 and includes wine (or possibly beer)
To register for this cooking class, please call 480-350-8181 or register on-line at: https://www.facebook.com/events/528739767324879/

Many of us know how to make any dish taste good–cream and butter, right? Chef Lisa is one of the few who has made it her business to focus on great taste and lighten the fats in recipes. With her cooking, we don’t have to make a choice between treating our taste buds and caring for our bodies—we get both! Come for the taste. Come for the nutrition. Come for the recipes. Come for the food science. Come to taste gluten-free delicious food. Just come and you’ll leave happy.
