chilli competition heat comes to Burnham's Food Festival
Burnham-On-Sea Food and Drink festival will play host to the official
South West England Chilli Cook-off on 24th May 2014.
popular in America, the Chilli Cook-Off phenomenon is now well
and truly established in the UK and entrants will have four hours
to cook a gallon of Chilli con Carne from scratch using nothing
but uncooked ingredients.
team's Chilli will be judged by a panel of experts to determine
the winner of the £250 cash prize. Festival attendees can
also get involved by tasting each teams Chilli and voting
for their favourite!
Doody, a self confessed chilli nutter set up the UK Chilli Cook
Off Association in 2013, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The winning
team will qualify for the UK Final later in the year and the competition
is open to anyone who thinks they can cook a knockout Chilli."
estate agent Saxons is getting behind the competition as sponsor
and its director, Graham Thompson, said: "It makes sense
to us to back such a popular local community event - the festival
brings thousands of people into Burnham and we hope that they
will all be chilli lovers in May!"
co-organiser Beverley Milner Simonds added: "The winner of
the UK final will win a trip to Las Vegas in Nevada, with flights
and accommodation included, to represent the UK in the World Food
Championships. The prize purse for the Chilli category is a whopping
$25000." You can enter a team today by visiting www.ukchillicookoff.co.uk
