Albany High chefs-in-training vie for best chili

ALBANY, N.Y. (March 31, 2017) -- Savor chili prepared by aspiring Albany High School chefs and support disabled veterans at the same time on Saturday at the annual Watervliet Chili Cook-off.

 

Two teams of students from Albany High’s culinary program at Abrookin Career and Technical Center – the Fiery Falcons and the Jalapeno Fireflies – have spent the week preparing for the event, which will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Dome, located at 13th Street and Second Avenue in Watervliet.

 

Tickets are $10 for adults, and children under 16 get in free.

 

Area chefs vie for the title of best chili at the event. Last year the Fiery Falcons took second place with their spicy recipe and the Jalapeno Fireflies took third with their mild recipe. Led by Chef Lisa Valentine, each team hopes to outdo its showing from last year.

 

The event is a fundraiser for the David Fisher Upper Hudson Heroes of Watervliet, an organization devoted to teaching kayaking to disabled veterans. The organization was created to honor the memory of Sgt. David Fisher, a Watervliet native who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
