Joe Laird from team Baker takes the sombrero

At the 7th annual Department of Biochemistry Chili Cook-off on October 29, Joe Laird from the Baker group defeated 11 other contenders in a blind taste test. Sheila’s laboratory will be the home of the chili-laden sombrero, the cook-off’s traveling trophy, for a year. The sombrero had resided in the Brenner group on the basis of Jennifer Boylston and James Geoghegan piquant concoction from the fall of 2009. Congratulations to all participants and thanks to Christine Kondratick for organization. The Department’s next major culinary/social event will be on the afternoon of December 16 at the Brenner house. Cookies anyone?
