Bloomingdale's at Riverside Square was the scene of a hot contest between the New York Firemen and the New Jersey Firemen. Karine's Kuchina was the scene of a chili cook off between the two competing teams. According to the tasting audience, there was a distinct difference between the two offerings. Their joint endeavors were very similar with the New York men offering a jocular dialogue along with their presentation. The Kotula family represented the New York Firemen while Paramus Firehouse 2 offered intense cooking combat.
