A&M’s annual Chilli Cook Off happened on the night of the 7th December, outside the Texas A&M building at the pyramid courtyard, and in quite the chilly weather for Doha. Of course, this was countered by the many teams that have registered to have people sample their fiery chilly to win the night’s competition for best presentation and best taste.
This five-years-running tradition in TAMUQ was perhaps started by the peculiar fact that chilli is the national dish of the state of Texas, which was mentioned by Mr. Canterbury, or perhaps there was too much of a demand for a serious cooking competion here at EC. Either way, the Chilli Cook Off will hopefully always be a favourite event for EC students in December, and for those gifted with cooking to finally have some recognition – at least by sizzling chilli standards.
