MILFORD — A frigid day brought people of all ages under the warming influence of the Mac 'n Chili Challenge.
They gathered inside St. Patrick's Church Hall last Saturday to sample and vote for their favorite mac 'n cheese and their favorite chili — all for a $5 donation. Proceeds will benefit the Milford Borough Recreation Committee and the Ann Street Park ice-skating rink.
The dishes were made by families and chefs alike. They washed it all down with craft beers Log Tavern Brewery, Shawnee Craft, and Here and Now from Honesdale — which sold out!
So, which recipes did the taste-tasters like best? Here they are:
