Chilli Fiesta 2013
Isle Of Wight
AboutThe “House of Chilli”, purveyors of exquisite Chilli products is hosting the 1st Isle of Wight Chilli Fiesta on 27th/28th July 2013. The event, based at the Smallbrook Stadium on the outskirts of Ryde, will feature the cream of the chilli product industry from across the UK. The spicy stalls will be offering a huge range of sauces, chutneys, chilli jams, chilli plants, fresh chillies, spices and all kinds of chilli related goods, as well as local produce, superb food, thrilling entertainment and exciting sideshows for kids and adults.
The fiesta will also play host to the 1st Isle of Wight Chilli Cook-off! Hugely popular in America, the Chilli Cook-off competition is now being officially introduced to the UK. Entrants into the competition will have 4 hours to cook a gallon of Chilli con Carne from scratch using nothing but uncooked ingredients. Each team’s Chilli will be judged by a panel of experts to determine the winner. Fiesta attendees can also get involved by tasting each team’s Chilli and voting for their favourite! The Winner and Runner-up will qualify for the UK Final later in the year. The competition is open to anyone who thinks they can cook a knockout Chilli.
This inaugural event will be raising money for the "Friends of Beaulieu House", which is a local charity on the island that helps children with severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviours and complex health needs, some of which are life limiting.
