We're famous! (sort of)

We like to tell people that Olde Westport Spice's famous Championship Chili was featured on the Today Show. It's mostly true. What really happened is that one of our longtime loyal customers who uses our spices religiously was featured on the Today Show demonstrating how to make his award-winning Hog Call Chili. Of course, his chili is delicious AND it includes Olde Westport Spice's ChampionChili seasoning. Thanks to Kyle Barton of Des Moines, Iowa for going all the way to New York and showing off his amazing cooking skills. We also love him for including our spice blend in his recipe. You can try his recipe at home. Check out his full recipe on the Today Show's web site. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/41423688/ns/today-foodwine/ You can also watch the segment from the news where Kyle not only explains why his chili recipe is so delicious, but he also demonstrates his State Fair-award-winning hog call. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTTrAdFPeZs Want to read a little more about Kyle, check out this article from the Des Moines Register. http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/dmr/index.php/2011/02/01/des-moines-man-is-a-chili-cook-off-finalist-on-the-today-show/
