6th Annual Houston Kosher Chili Cookoff
The Kosher Chili Cookoff is the largest kosher food event in Houston and celebrates the fellowship of the Jewish community with a day of food, live entertainment, contests, and family friendly activities while raising funds for non-profit organizations in the Houston Jewish Community.
The cookoff attracts more than 3,500 attendees annually for live music, a moonwalk, climbing walls, balloon artists, a jalapeno eating contest and a silent auction as they taste some of Houston’s best kosher chili. Cooking teams are encouraged to register for the judged competition so groups or organizations can promote themselves, build teamwork, have fun and reward contributors, board members and staff. Winners of the kosher chili tasting contest will win coveted trophies and prizes presented by celebrity and media judges during the award ceremony at 3:30 pm.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jewish Day Schools including Beren Academy, Beth Yeshurun Day School, Emory Weiner, The Shlenker School, Torah Day School, Torah Girls Academy, Yeshiva Torat Emet, and the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center’s Meals on Wheels.
