Annual Upstate NY Chili Contest Reminds Us of Where We’ve Been

If you live in the Ithaca, NY area, a small town in the heart of Tompkins County that’s home to Moosewood Restaurant (inspiration for the bestselling Moosewood Cookbook Series) and Cornell University, you might want to enter the Ithaca Journal’s Chili Recipe Contest.

Unlike Charleston, SC, Ithaca is a place where at least one pair of good winter boots and a strong shovel is obligatory and a woodstove is a godsend.

After weeks of breathtaking fall foliage, the first snows come to the Ithaca area in mid-November and the last snows often come in April when temperatures in the Low Country are starting to rise into the mid-70’s.

Snow (such as it is) is rare here, and I often think of Ithaca when we’re walking the beaches here in December, or running errands around town looking at palm trees and Spanish moss bedecked live oaks without an icicle in sight.
