Do You Make Award Winning Chilli?

Chilli Competition

8:26am 30th May 2013

Do you boost about how good your chilli is?

The Great Dorset Chilli Festival is hosting a competition that could be just to your taste.

The event at Wimborne St Giles in August has been chosen to host the Dorset heat of the 2013 Chilli Cook Off Championships.

You'll have four hours to cook up your recipe on the day which will be judged by an expert panel.

The hottest chilli won't necessarily be the winner as judges will be looking for the best appearance, aroma, consistency, taste and aftertaste of the Chilli. The winning team will receive a cash prize of £250 and entry into the UK final of the 2013 UK Chilli Cook-off Championships. The winner of the UK Grand Final will win a trip to Las Vegas including flights and accommodation to represent the UK and compete in the Chilli section of the World Food Championships. The prize purse for the Las Vegas Chilli competition is a whopping $25000!
