Acute Care Troy’s “Chili & Chowder Cook-Off” A Tasty Success

What’s your pleasure… chowder or chili? Fortunately, you didn’t have to choose if you attended Acute Care Troy’s “Chili & Chowder Cook-Off” held at the St. Mary’s campus on February 4.

More than 200 staff attended the tasty event, sampling delicious chili and chowder recipes, and voting for their favorites. The chefs of the unique creations were none other than fellow staff members from Samaritan, St. Mary’s, Albany Memorial, and the Schools of Nursing who entered their special dishes for the judging. Entries include hot and spicy chili, sweet potato chili, and white chili; to wine-infused chowder, Reuben chowder, and smoky corn chowder.
