It is 9.00am we have had breakfast at our budget hotel (Travel Lodge and Little Chef) and will soon be on our way to the Chilli Fiesta.

Day 2 of the West Dean Chilli Fiesta, Darth and Mrs Naga are out and about doing video interviews and a what is it like at the Chilli Fiesta, to be screen here very soon.

I started with a quick wander around the stalls, very pleased to find Why Not Hot with some stunning new products and Edible Ornamentals stand was well pack with fresh chillies, while Fire Foods new black and yellow bottles looked very dramatic.

The walled garden was not as busy as we expected, but there are some stand that must not be missed in the potting sheds including Cool Chilli Co, The Chilli Garden, Spicy Monkey and Hot-Headz (Sorry if I missed anyone out).

I had a good chat with Jan Rasmussen from “The Mission Mexican Grill with whom we are hoping to arrange a video visit to their outlet in Reading to do a how to roll your own Burrito film and well as having at look at what it takes to run a first class Mexican restaurant.

I also found a very odd product, a kind of slip-on garden shoe with a chilli pattern on it from www.backdoorshoes.co.uk ( I will put up some images very soon, so you can see what I mean).

Greenhouse Sensation had a very interesting looking product called Windowgrow, which looked like a great way to get fresh chillies in your kitchen and you need them.

Lots of music this year, including a mexican 3 piece band.

Mr Singh’s was working hard doing tastings, this is a great sauce, but only when seen as a large banner does the new look work for me, it a very clean look, but on a bottle its impact is a little lost (I did like to old labels, confused, but much more fun).

Lots of Chilli plants for sale again this year, and the chilli creche was being well used.

Lots more to mention when I get back and upload the images.

Only one day to go so if you are able get down to West Dean this Sunday and a lazy day tasting some great food.

A full set of pictures will be post very soon.
