On Saturday October 15th the Pfister Hotel participated in the East Town Associations, “Heat It Up:Milwaukee’s Bloody Mary and Chili Challenge,” taking place during the Farmers Market inCathedral Square. With over 20 local restaurants vying for the coveted award, participants took in all the different offerings during the crisp Saturday Morning.
In the Chili competition, awards were given out in two different categories. “Best Veggie Chili” and “Best Beef Chili.” Chef Andronico Guzman Rivera of the Pfister Café entered with his Signature White Bean Chili. While his Chili was enjoyed by the masses, Chef Andronico took honorable mention.
In the coveted Bloody Mary competition, participants were judged by two specific criteria, “Bloody Mary Display,” and “Best Tasting,” both scores combined for one Grand Champion. Taking that award was Valerie from the Pfister Lobby Lounge with her signature “Pfister Mary.” Val had the longest line of all competitors with people actually getting a cocktail from other competitors, so that they could drink it while they wait in line for the Pfister Mary and it’s cornucopia of accoutrement.
We are very proud of our two participants. They were a great display of sportsmanship and healthy competition for theMilwaukeearea. Congratulations again to Chef Andronico and Valerie on their Pfister Spirit!
