2nd Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off

November 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm MST

Vegan Chili Cook Off

The holiday season is in full swing so what better time to have a fun get together trying some fabulous vegan food creations?! As the winner of the 1st Vegan Chili Cook-Off back in 2019 created by Lofty Hopes and hosted by Go Vegan Cafe, I thought it only appropriate that Vegas Vegan Culinary School & Eatery host the 2nd Annual Cook-Off on Saturday, November 12th from 1P to 3P.

We will have vegan “celebrity” judges from the newly released, first of its kind, vegan cooking show, “Peeled”, including CEO of Sophie’s Kitchen Dr. Miles Woodruff, Chef Donald Lemperle from Vegenation and special guest, Chef Babette Davis who will also be doing a cookbook signing for anyone wishing to purchase a copy of her cookbook, “Cash in on Cashews”. Our two “tentative” local vegan judges are our beloved Lu Vu from the former Go Vegan Cafe and Alecia Ghilarducci from No Butcher.

The 1st place category winners will be awarded “Best Vegan Chili in Vegas 2022” and “People’s Choice 2022” plaques along with a gift certificate for a free cooking class at Vegas Vegan Culinary School. Both categories will have awards for 2nd and 3rd place along with a $15 gift card to our deli.

How it works:

To be a contestant the entry fee is $25. Sign up quickly as room is limited to 20 contestants. Then, just bring your best chili in a large crock pot with a ladle to serve, and we will do the rest! Tastings will be in small 4 oz cups. Please bring enough for 36 tastings (144 oz).

Tasting tickets are $15 and are limited to 30 tasters. The ticket gets you entry to receive a sample of our 20 contestants’ chili samples. You will be required to put in your vote for the People’s Choice Award winners.

Being a business downtown in the Las Vegas Arts District has truly brought us face-to-face with the homeless and mental health issues facing many in our city. Therefore, we are donating 20% of the ticket and deli sales from this event to our local charity, Project 150.
