For those not aware, Capsicana are a supplier of authentic spices, dried Herbs and Chillies. They also post some fantastic recipes on their website. Ben runs Capsicana and heres a little bit about him written by him;

I founded the Capsicana Chilli Co because I love chillies and authentic world cuisine.

My earliest memory of spicy food was when my parents gave me some bombay mix when I was about four – I think I must have been harassing them for some and they thought that I’d stop pestering them after the chilli powder hit my taste buds. Well I loved it and for ages afterwards they would get me a packet of bombay mix on every Saturday shopping trip and I would sit on the living room floor with my spicy snack and glass of milk just in case it got too hot!

And so the obsession continued! We would frequently prepare delicious world food recipes particularly indian and south east asian and the kitchen became my favourite room in the house.

When I was a teenager my Dad started to get into Mexican cuisine so we would often have a Mexican food night and occasionally I’d get a bottle of Sol or Dos Equis if I was lucky! I became truly captivated when I discovered the immense variety of chillies and the unique qualities they each possess from size, shape, colour and most importantly FLAVOUR – and I suppose this is the main drive that kicked Capsicana into being; I want everyone to enjoy the flavours of chillies and think of them as something more than that which imparts heat”

You may be aware of a series currently being aired on C4 called Spice Trip where a professional chef and a spice blender travel the world uncovering spices and cooking fantastic recipes.

To celebrate this, Ben is offering all his customers 20% off all products using the code SPICETRIP and is valid until the end of the year and in addition to that, you will get a FREE pack of their Smoked Bhut Jolokia Dried Chillies.

There is also a competition running on the site to win a copy of the book that accompanies the TV show, details are available here
