A mild but breezy evening was on tap for Preston’s Candlelight Ski & Chili Cook-Off 2015 on January 17 in Preston, Minn. with many area residents and guests attending. The free event is sponsored by the Preston Area Chamber of Commerce and the Trailhead Inn.

The evening began with the Chili Cook-Off, which took place at the Trailhead Inn where there were six chili entries to sample and compare. The chili ranged from mild to spicy and thin to thick, with certain ingredients, such as jalapenos, making some stand out more than others.

There were six chili entries cooked up by Dave Harrison, Dick Ebert, Carter Johnson (returning champ of four years), Andy Harrigan, Christina Somerville, and Traci Corson.

Also available were toppings including cheese, onions, crackers, Fritos, and sour cream. Garlic bread was served, which was tasty and helped to distinguish between the taste of each chili entry by having a bite in between samples.

Drinks were offered, including water, hot chocolate, and wine. The water came in especially handy for the chili entries that were a little on the spicy side.

The winners of the 2015 Chili Cook Off are as follows:

• First Place (chili #4) Carter Johnson (Five-year running Champion!)

• Second Place (chili #6) Dave Harrison

• Third Place (chili #1) Christina Somerville

Prizes were Preston Bucks in the amount of $65.00 for first place, $25.00 for second place and $10.00 for third place.

Traci Corson of the Trailhead Inn was busy hosting the event and making sure everyone had what they needed to try chili samples and vote for their favorite. Corson states that the event is “a wonderful opportunity to do something outside” and to get together for socialization inside also.

“We are hoping for a good turnout,” stated Traci, as the last couple years there were an estimated eighty to one hundred people who attended each year, and this year looked to be a good turnout by the full dining area at the Trailhead Inn office throughout the evening.

The weather cooperated with warm temperatures, although the wind made itself known while venturing out on the candlelit trail. Traci says “we are lucky we had a mild evening; some years it has been cancelled because it was too cold” and this year’s weather during the event was more mild than some since the event b .....
