The Chilli Hut opens it’s doors in Bath

Dedicated chilli shops are still a rarity in this country, ChilliPepperPete being the one that stands out, but there’s a new contender who opened their doors yesterday. Residents of Bath are about to get a red hot cure for the winter blues as The Chilli Hut opened in Green Park Station, unsurprisingly this shop will be dealing exclusively with chillies and chilli based products.

They will also be trading at the Milsom Place Christmas market until the 9th December if you can’t wait to try some of their fiendishly hot condiments. This crazy shop will be selling a huge variety of incredibly hot specially imported face-melting sauces which they tell me include the hottest chillies and chilli sauces in the world.

I spoke to Simon Francis, the owner, about the possibly dangerous heat levels of their foodstuffs:

I have to admit we do have some seriously hot sauces but rest assured that we also sell lots of delicious condiments which are just tasty rather than painful including some really amazing locally produced stuff. We’ll be having tastings every single day so people can come down and see what it’s all about, anyway we can guide you to a heat level you can handle although I’d probably recommend going way beyond what you can handle to be honest”.

Simon went on to say that in his opinion Bath has been sorely lacking this kind of establishment and that they would be doing as much as possible to promote this pain inducing fruit with promotions and events such as chilli eating contests, especially with the Bath Chilli Festival happening next year. Not that I’ll be taking part in that competition!

So there you have it, a new chilli shop in the South West of England, sharing the chilli love which cannot be a bad thing, every town should have one! The Chilli Hut is already stocking quite a range of products but Simon has said that if there are any Chilli sauce producers out there who would like their products stocked, then send an email to the address below.

I came to your chilli hut on a school trip and I tried one of your chilli sweets. Haw do you make them so hot? Would you be able to tell us the exact ingredients, or are they secret?
