ChilliPepperPete

Brighton Chilli Shop This weekend we found ourselves in Brighton for a non chilli event (I know what was I doing). So to make sure I got my Chilli fix we went to see the new owner of what was the ChilliPepperPete Chilli Shop. The Brighton Chilli Shop is still in the same location at 73 Trafalgar Street, Brighton. BN1 4EB. The signage has changed but the shop still contains an Aladdin cave of chilli goodies.

Tony the new owner of the shop could not be more welcoming, he has a bright smile and is very proud of the changes he is making and is keen to learn the trade. Fresh out of university in 2014, he had heard that the ChilliPepperPete company was looking to sell the shop as a going concern and so he contacted them and the deal was done.

There are tasting going on in the shop all the time, and with such a large range it takes a while to see what there is on offer. Tony is just starting out on social media, so follow him on twitter and Facebook. The shops web site is coming so visit www.brightonchillishop.co.uk and enter your email to be notified when they get it all online.

Here at the ChileFoundry we wish Tony good luck with his new venture.

Happy New Year Chilli Padawans!! I hope you got everything you wanted at xmas and that your new year was a drunken night of debauchery! I know mine was!

I thought I’d kick off the new year with a little company from london that is growing every day as more and more people sample their products and spread the word. A guy by the name of Joe Walters, started the Original Jerky Company London in 2012 with a view to providing good quality PROPER jerky to the UK masses, none of that moist shite you find in supermarkets! (that’s probably made of horse!..you know who i’m looking at!) So without further ado lets get into this stuff shall we?

Ingredients: Ghost:

BEEF, BEER, BHUT JOLOKIA, CIDER VINEGAR, LEMON, SALT

Ingredients: Dragons Blood:

BEEF, DRAGONS BLOOD, BEER, PINEAPPLE, LEMON, VINEGAR, SALT

As you can see from the ingredients, ! have two types of jerky here today for the vid review, the “Ghost” jerky, which of course contains the all famous ghost pepper, or bhut jolokia! The Dragons blood one is so named because it contains the now legendary Dragon’s Blood sauce from Chillipepperpete and as such, packs a bit of a punch!!

Watch the vid review below, and then come back to see the final scores!!

Okay so there you have it, not massively hot but enough to give a damn good burn and very VERY tasty to boot, possibly the best and by far the hottest jerky I have tried yet! If I was a persuasive man, I would say GO AND BUY SOME OF THIS BLOODY JERKY NOW FROM Original Jerky, ITS AMAZING!! But I’m not that persuasive, so I’ll leave that decision up to you! Right, thats all for now padawans, I know its been way too long so I’ll try to get another one done soon, until then may the sauce be with you…always!!

August has been a confusing month, it is when we have the most chilli festivals and there is a lot of work going on organising events etc, but this month has ended with the very sad news of the passing of Peter Seymour. Peter was know to most of us as ChilliPepperPete, the chilli business started from his home in Brighton and has now expanded in to a manufacturing business, a shop in the Brightons north laines and the very popular Fiery Foods UK Chilli Festival.

I think we will all miss Peter, but happly he has left a business that will live on. Long live ChilliPepperPete
