North Country Chili Cook-Off starts Monday

Chili cook-off

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The North Country Chili Cook-Off kicks off next week.

The Volunteer Transportation Center’s Jeremiah Papineau says 28 businesses have signed on for this pub-crawl-style month-long event.

Watch the video for his interview on 7 News This Morning.

Usually, the cook-off is a one-day event at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown.

But because of the pandemic, it’s going to be more of a “chili crawl.”

Restaurants in Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties will feature their chili throughout February and people can vote for their favorites.
