A Month of Chili
As an antidote to the cold and snowy weather of January, we are celebrating chili in its many variations, all of them warm and satisfying, throughout the month of February. Each Saturday, we will have a guest chef with their own take on the classic. This week, we will be visited by Bull City Burger and Brewery with their All Beef Chili, winner of the 2012 Bull City Chili Challenge in the Restaurant Division. (Having had their chili both on a dog and in a bowl, I can attest to its excellence.)

BCBB uses only pasture-raised beef, much of which is sourced through Firsthand Foods, an excellent local organization where I once interned. (Firsthand Foods aggregates meat from many small local livestock farmers that would individually not be able to match the quantity demanded by restaurants and institutions.) BCBB also sources many of their vegetables locally, changing their menu with the seasons. And, if the groundhog sees his shadow this Sunday, we could have six more weeks of the chili season.
