Hatchett’s 2020 Chili Cook-Off

February 1, 2020

Hatchett Design Remodel hosted our 9th Annual Chili Cook-Off today to kick-off Super Bowl weekend!  Staff, family and clients gathered in our Newport News showroom as our chili contenders competed crockpot to crockpot!
The competition heated up this year as our chili masters vied for Hatchett’s coveted Chili Cook-Off trophy.
Our esteemed panel of taste testers mingled while they enjoyed a sample of each batch before casting their ballots.  Of all the champion chilis, there was one clear winner.
 
The Winner
Congratulations, Tommy for earning your place in Hatchett Design Remodel history as the 2020 Chili Cook-Off Winner. He couldn’t have done it without the winning recipe, which came from one of our clients.  Half that trophy is yours, Rusty Adams!
