National Chilli Awards 2011 - Professional Products Awards

Due to my late arrival, I only got to input on a few of the awards this year (I had an excuse, I had only just got back from Brazil the night before, and then got held up in the Goodwood Revival traffic), but talking to my fellow judges, this year was full of potential winners, with some very close run contests for first place.

I have to say I do agree with the eventual winners, there are some amazing products in this years competition, some of which are completely new to me. like Chinthe Burmese Prawn Balachaung which Darth Naga could not have been more impressed with, While James Wreck our US judge from www.eatmoreheat.com found to be very unusual for his US tastes.

Fallen Angle Alcoholic Ginger Beer, was amazing, and it is was not for the Purgatory White Chocolate from Grim Reaper Foods it would have been my number one find of the event (it is great to see former amateur winners back and winning in the Professional awards).

The National Chilli Awards 2011 Winners are:-

One company Sinful Sauces managed to collect two trophy’s this year for best Newcomer and Best Label, what they have achieved in just 8 months is outstanding.

Finally the award for Best Chilli Company had to go to ChilliPepperPete, this was not fix, and yes it was their event and awards, but the judges are completely independent, and I put forward others for this trophy, but really when you look at what they have achieved this year and over the past few years they have to be number one. Successfully launched a new Chilli Event. Started the National Chilli Awards. Opened one of the UK’s first Chilli shops and they worked hard to promote the UK chilli market.

Our congratulations go to all the competitors and winners and our thanks go especially to Peter, Miranda, Rose and the rest of the team at ChilliPepperPete.
