The booklet in Chili Cook-off in a Box explains why chili cook-offs matter today, and describes the history of chili from pre-Columbian campfires to today's vegan versions. It gives instructions on how to organize the event around themes, such as five-alarm, vegetarian, carnivore's delight, red chili, green chili, etc., and has profiles of chili cook-off winners with prize-winning recipes and tips.
Also included in the kit are:
* Sheet to Track Entries (name, type of chili, designated number)
* Numbered Table Tents (so judges don't know whose chili is whose)
* Scorecards (rating taste, texture, appearance, creativity)
* Judge Badges
* Prize Ribbons for Contest Winners
