John Milford Wins “Peoples’ Choice” Silver Award in Chili Cook Off
10:25 am pdt
Always willing to put his gloves on for a good cause, John Milford participated in the September 8th University
Mound Ladies' Home Chili Cook Off and Fundraiser. Competing against professional chefs, John's 'One Alarm' Southwest Chili
knocked the socks off the judges as they came back for seconds of his home cooked chili.
lover of spicy foods, John tamed the recipe for this competition in that the residents of UMLH are elderly, and he didn't
want to send them to higher levels of care! Nonetheless, the toasted spices that lurk in the background of this delicious
Southwest chili gave a delayed punch to one's taste buds to remind the taster that he's a serious contender.
The University Mound Ladies' Home was started in 1884 by a donation from James Lick to provide a home for ladies
of modest means. Today the mission remains the same with the addition that men are also becoming residents. For more information
