For the Kramnik vs. Leko World Championship match, I am
having a small party. I am inviting a few friends over to enjoy the
festivities. I bought a few cases and broke out the demonstration
board I got a few years ago. I got this great Chess Championship Chili
recipe, I am going to bust it out for Saturday's game. Now maybe your
not having a Chess Championship party, but you should take a copy of this recipe,
because you never know, maybe some day you will have to cook for a dozen
chess players. So here it is.
