1978 Cincinnati Magazine issue about Cincinnati chili

From time to time I like to research the internet to find out more information about our beloved Cincinnati style chili. Today I stumbled across an issue of Cincinnati Magazine from 1978 which featured "The Red Hot Guide to Cincinnati Chili". This guide recounts the tale of how Empress Chili was founded, has short reviews (sometimes very snarky) of chili parlors, ties in politics and fashion and even shows you how to create your own chili parlor inside your home.

It is an interesting read, if you have some spare time or would like to read about how Cincinnati chili was viewed in the past, follow this link: Cincinnati Magazine October 1978
