GHY International Associates enjoyed an event hosted by the Social Committee on Nov 19th, 2010. The event was a chili cook off, there were 5 cooks and almost 2 dozen judges. The entries varied from sweet to HOT, with many variations including a turkey based chili for the judges to sample. The Winner was Donna Fetterly, a senior rater from the Winnipeg office. She has kindly agreed to share her winning recipe with you. Enjoy.
