Cook-Off Heats Up HITS-On-The-Hudson
SAUGERTIES, NY (July 15, 2004) Equestrians will not be the only
ones vying for prizes this summer at the new HITS-On-The-Hudson
200-acre site in Saugerties, New York. On Saturday, July 31, twenty
of the country's finest chili chefs will arrive with their chili
peppers in tow to compete in an officially judged Chili Cook-off.
with a culinary arsenal of family secrets, special recipes and plain
old ingenuity, these professional chefs intend to make this event
red hot as they compete for the opportunity to advance to the national
cook-off, which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada later in the year.
Recipes will be judged on taste, consistency, aroma, color, and
spectators need not feel left out since they will have the opportunity
to taste each entry and cast a vote for their favorite. The recipe
with the most votes will be crowned the People's Choice.
sampling award-winning chilies, spectators can watch many of the
country's best horses and riders compete. Show jumping classes start
at 8am and go to 5pm. The ten different arenas are sure to offer
something for everyone. Shoppers can stroll along Vendors Row, which
houses Friendly Mercedes, Ford Trucks and a variety of boutiques
selling jewelry, watches, custom saddlery and tack, souvenirs, custom
boots and shoes, and unique clothing with an equestrian flare.
