The eighth annual Chili and Hot Wing Cook-Off will be held at the IUP Academy of Culinary Arts on Wednesday, February 1, 2012.

Chef Martha Jo Rupert and a team of culinary student volunteers are once again assisting local resident, Gene “Chilipepper” Roberts, to run this appetizing community event on the eve of Punxsutawney Phil’s weather prognostication.

Guests will be able to purchase tickets to sample a wide variety of chili and wing recipes created by local and not-so-local cook-off competitors. Judging to determine the cook-off winners and a jalapeno pepper eating contest open to everyone will commence at 7:00 p.m.

Come join the fun and good eats! Doors open at 6:00 p.m. All proceeds to benefit Hog Heaven Rescue Farm Inc.
