Cookin’ With Cobb & Gonzalez: 2020 YLS Charity Chili Cook-Off Champions

This past Saturday, Cobb & Gonzalez took part in a charity chili cook-off hosted by the Jacksonville Bar Young Lawyers Section. It was up to James Gonzalez to cook a chili that would later become the competition winner. “The recipe is a family secret handed down from generation to generation,” said James. “It was a risk going with the green chili.” However, in the Cobb & Gonzalez internal chili cook-off, it was the staff favorite. James’ chili was the firm’s pick to compete in the competition against 45 other Jacksonville law firms. At Cobb & Gonzalez, we are all about going above and beyond to achieve excellence, and that’s exactly what James did by making fresh quesadillas to pair with his outstanding chili. “They were a natural complement to the green chili and a unique mix-up from the traditional red chili and cornbread,” mentioned James.
The Riverside Arts market was flooded with people who have a love for chili, fundraising, and a good time. In addition to James’ award-winning cooking skills, Chris Cobb, Nick Elder, and Amanda Ingersoll played a huge role in getting our chili to the top as well. Cobb & Gonzalez is proud to have participated in an event that raised money for Clarke School of Jacksonville and we’d like to say thank-you to the JBA Young Lawyers Section and everyone who was able to participate. As we continue to strive for excellence, we are humbled to be the 2020 YLS Charity Chili Cook-Off Champions.
