RumbergerKirk Serves up the Winning Chili Recipe

RumbergerKirk Serves up the Winning Chili Recipe

At the 23rd Annual Tallahassee Bar Association and Legal Aid Foundation Chili Cook-off, RumbergerKirk’s Tallahassee office beat out 11 other teams for the People’s Choice Award for Best Chili.

Partner Linda Bond Edwards with her husband “Chef” Russell Edwards

The winning recipe was created by Russell Edwards, firm partner Linda Edward’s husband. The tasty recipe included special secret ingredients, one of which is black angus ground steak. Competing at the event for the past seven years, the team is no stranger to awards, but this is the first time the firm has taken the top prize for best chili, although Russell claims we should have won in prior years. In years past, the firm has twice received the 5-Alarm Award honoring chili packed with heat and won the award for “Most Magnificent Margarita” last year.

Congratulations to all who played a role in the event including Richard Greenberg, Kayla Platt Rady, Nathaniel Johnson, Carlie Duquette, Leonard Dietzen (and his wife, Beth, who created the team banner), David Marsey,  Jack Weiss, Linda Edwards and her husband Russell Edwards.
