The Month of Chili

Arts of Life Inc, West Carroll Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA


We’re back! As if this year couldn’t get any spicier, we are ready to crank up the heat and make all of November the Month of Chili.

For 11 straight years Arts of Life has brought you the Chili Cook Off, and just because we can’t all be in the studio this year doesn’t mean we’re going to let you down now.

We hope you and all your loved ones will join us for one of our many virtual opportunities and celebrate one of our most successful fundraising events of the year.

NOW ON SALE! We proud to release our first ever Chili Cook Cookbook with recipes from judges, contestants, and friends near and far. Available digitally on November 5th or for hard copy pre-order, featuring traditional chilis and other scrumptious ways to eat chili peppers.

NOVEMBER 13: Learn from one of the best in the biz in a hands-on Chili Cooking Class with Chris Reed of Bumbu Roux. Reed will teach us to cook his first place Chili Cook Off chili (featuring turkey and butternut squash) and homemade cornbread. You’ll have a chance to ask questions in real time as Chef Reed takes us through his recipes step by step.  For local folks, we’ll even deliver the fresh ingredients right to your door to ensure you have everything you could possibly need!

BONUS! NOVEMBER 20: Join Chef Elizabeth Floerscheimer of Cuca Cucina in a live virtual cooking class to make her delicious Filet Mignon Chili! Class up your chili game, and help support the great working being done at our organization. All proceeds benefit Arts of Life. BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE.

Last but certainly not least we’re partnering with restaurants throughout the city to bring you chili!
