Gerald Fowler has written a quick report for us from the Chilli & Beer Festival at the Stephenson Works in Newcastle:-

Gerald Fowler - The Chilli pepper Company

Newcastle upon Tyne, Stephenson’s Works, South Street, Newcastle upon Tyne The first Chilli and Beer Festival was held at the Stephenson Works in Newcastle on the 12th and 13th June as part of the well established Eat Newcastle food event. Leading UK chilli companies were represented,including The Chilli Pepper Company, Trees Can’t Dance, The Hot Stuff Chilli Co & Spice Monkey.

With hundreds of chilli products to sample as well as over ninety beers of the Wylam Brewery, live music and a chili cook-off, it was an extremely successful and popular event.

The Chilli Pepper Company were again asked to withdraw their hottest sauce from sampling, due to the unfortunate effect on some of their enthusiastic customers. However, the same customers couldn’t resist buying the sauce and it was sold out on the first day of the show.

Saturday saw the Great Chili Cook-off, USA v England, judges were Gerald Fowler of The Chilli Pepper Company and Becky Mackenzie of Trees Can’t Dance.. The USA chili was judged the hottest but the overall winner was the UK with the tastiest chili.

The USA used an old Native American family recipe handed down over many years and was spiced up with the Bhut Jolokia.
