Stories – Chili Champion Crowned!

The results are in. The 2016 Commissioner Chili Champion has been crowned!

State of Connecticut Commissioners Miriam Delphin-Rittmon (DHMAS), Kevin Sullivan (DRS), Sean Connolly (DVA) and Secretary Ben Barnes (OPM) participated in Chrysalis Center's Commissioners Chili Cook-Off on Monday evening, February 29th at the new TCC (Training & Conference Center) located on the Chrysalis Center Social Innovation Hub.

Each contestant brought in their special recipe, homemade chili. Participants in each of the Commissioner's programs were asked to rate the chili for appearance, taste, spiciness and overall presentation. When the scores were tallied, DHMAS Commissioner Miriam Delphin-Rittmon received the highest score and received the prestigious Chili Champion 2016 bowl!

Chrysalis Center wishes to thank all the participants and judges in this fun-filled event! Should you or your company wish to have an event at the TCC, please contact Director of Events Jeffrey Zwolak at 860.263.4422 or
