The debate rages: who has the best chili in Thailand? You? Your neighbour? The American expat down the street? Find out at AMCHAM’s Big Chili Cook-off, part of the chamber’s annual Independence Day picnic, held on July 4 at KIS International School. Proceeds from the event help raise money for the AMCHAM Thailand Charitable Foundation. If that’s not reason enough to celebrate America’s most popular holiday, the chili should seal the deal. The cook-off is open to anyone who believes they make the best bowl of chili in Bangkok. The people’s choice award goes to the good stuff that receives the most votes from the public. The price to enter the cook-off is B500. For more information, email email@example.com or call 08 1837 6855.
