In true Cleveland fashion, winter is once again upon us and bringing the cold and snow weeks earlier than anyone ever wants.  Here at Bialosky + Partners, we responded to this chilly arrival the only way we know how: showing off our culinary capabilities with the first ever BPA Chili Cook-Off!


With three prizes up for grabs (Spiciest, Most Creative, and the most coveted, People’s Choice), our eight entrants worked tirelessly to craft the perfect chili.   A host of other delectable treats were available to pair with the main event, from homemade cornbread to bacon-wrapped chicken, and perhaps most importantly, a number of delicious desserts.  It was quite a full spread, which was a good thing with so many members of the BPA family present!



After an hour of intense chili-tasting by our esteemed group of judges, the results were in.  Winning the Most Creative award was Ryan Parsons with his Bourbon Spiked Chili while Spiciest went to the Kuck family for their aptly-named Hottie FooFoo. And our People’s Choice winner, by the margin of a single vote, went to Brad Valtman for his Cajun Sausage Chili.  While getting most of the office together at once is never an easy task, the first BPA Chili Cook-Off was certainly a success, and should prove to be a great new BPA tradition for years to come!
