Unidev’s First Annual Chili Cook-Off and Contest – Winners

Today, we take a brief moment away from technology and web design to commend Human Resources on a job well-done and to commend our developers and web marketers on their superb Chili-making skills. In case you missed it (and you probably did if you’re not a Unidev employee), here is a little background on this new tradition from Unidev’s very own Human Resources Manager, Maria.

Our motto for the event: “9 chili recipes…1 winner”.

Who knew that technology and the kitchen blended so nicely? We’ve listed overall winners and category winners below:

#1 Dhanya James – 2011 Grand Master Chili Champion and by a unanimous vote, winner of the “Best Afterburn” Award. If you’d like to know more about Dhanya, here is a fabulous blog post that she wrote on Hibernate Criteria sqlRestriction. Smarty pants.

Address Dhanya by her new title whenever possible. From this day forward, all new employees will be informed that Dhanya makes the best chili in the office.

Second place: A strong showing by Kayla Robinson (#5), that Texas Chili was great!
Third place: John Schoenecker (#7)
Most Original: Liz Maritz (#3)
Most Savory: Kevin Collins (#9)

Thanks to our other competitors for taking part and feeding the crowd, see what some taste testers had to say:

#2 Angela Trokey: “Nice and cheesy” “Awesome!”
#4 Laurie Woodruff: “Love the beans” “Good flavor”
#6 Maria Beaver: “Hooray for veggies!” “Good zucchini”
#8 Andrea Bemis: “Very original” “Nice variety of ingredients”

Great showing Unidev! We can’t wait until next year.
