Loving Mugs Chili Cook-off


The Penticton Art Gallery is cooking up a new event in the spirit of our famous Annual Soup Bowls Fundraiser. This time, we are calling on local chefs to spice things up with the Loving Mugs Chili Cook-off! Add some heat to your February as you sample an array of hearty Chilis, as well as delectable breads and finely crafted local wines and beers. Treat someone you know to a little post-Valentines love and a truly unique gastronomical adventure!

As with the Soup Bowls competition, chefs will be competing to win the People's Choice award for best chili. Guests will get to choose a hand-made pottery mug from which to sample their exquisite creations. There shall also be live musical entertainment by Tavis Weir and Stefan Bienz, as well as some infamous door-prizes to entertain and delight you!

Featuring the Brodo Kitchen, Cannery Brewing, En'Owkin Centre,  Monday Night Dinners, The Nest and Nectar, Ooknakane  Friendship Centre,  Smuggler's Smokehouse, Winecrush and Urtica Eatery at Legend Distilling.
