Johnsonville hosted a firehouse cook-off here in Atlanta on yesterday at Firehouse 19 which so happened to apart of the cook-off challenge. Firehouse No. 19 & 30 along with local competed for the title of best chili or stew recipe. The challenge started off with the Firehouses each prepping their ingredients.
Can you tell what some of the mysterious ingredients are?
The competing stations, Stations 19 and 30 each created and cooked their own unique chili and/or stew recipes that each featured Johnsonville Sausage and a seasonal vegetable. The stations were encouraged to use local ingredients as well. I was able to take a sneak peek at one of the stations local ingredient.
As the challenge was underway the teams worked diligently to create their special recipe. The taste testers/judges begin to make their ways to have a tasting of the stations creations. Once you grabbed your sample the next step was judging so there were two bowls placed on the judges table where you were instructed to drop the color spoon of your favorite dish.
The stage has been set! The BLUE vs. THE RED. We had Captain Brown on the blue team (Below) and Lucas on the red, who will take the championship home?
Guess what? I have the recipes for you all to try! Check them out below! Print them and save for later!
[yumprint-recipe id=’9′]The recipes were judged by event attendees, including special guest, Desmond Trufant, cornerback of the Atlanta Falcons.
The event was open to the public and food samples were be free for all attendees. Johnsonville also donated $5,000 to the Atlanta fire department to show support and appreciation for their hard work in the community.
DRUMROLL…..THE WINNER WAS THE SQUASH & SAUSAGE STEW!!
Thank you Johnsonville, Station 19 & 30 for an amazing event!
