I'm so glad to see new faces and new ideas brought into our friendly competition, and I'm reminded that we may be at a crossroads. The themes thus far have challenged and inspired our chefs, but I'm also aware that at least one - chili - was a world of pain that created grumblings which persist even a year later.

If you have any questions, or if you need help finding something in particular, drop me a line.
