Chili Cook-Off Champion
Shawn Schipper, Mattawan, was named the area’s champion chili chef at the Antwerp Sunshine Library’s first-ever Chili Cook-off. His blend of beef, spices, cocoa powder, red wine vinegar, and tomatoes was the public’s overall favorite in the tight taste-testing race.
Tom Brockway, Mattawan, received second place honors for his chicken chili, and Kim Decker, Mattawan, took third with her beef chili.
Van Buren District Library sponsored the contest, with additional support from the Friends and Junior Friends of the Antwerp Sunshine Library.
