Welcome to the world of cooking competition chili!
We were the FIRST ICS Cook Off to rename the Youth/Yute Division after Jim Heywood. Jim was a long time ICS cook and Culinary Institute of America professor emeritus who passed away in 2012. He was an avid supporter of kids cooking chili. To honor Jim’s memory, we renamed our “Yute Division” after him 7 years ago.
To enter the very competitive “Jim Heywood Yute division” of cooking chili, you must be under 18. You can be any age. We’ve had “yutes” as young as 6 years old. You must supply everything you’ll need that day to cook chili. You will need a stove with a one lb propane tank, a chili pot,your meat and spices and everything else.
Prizes include a swell trophy, a tent, and some cash.
You can do it! Come and cook chili with the big boys and girls.
