UK Chilli Stand Off is back! After last year’s sell-out success, UK Chilli Stand Off returns on Saturday 17 November, with 9 great chefs to compete for the title of UK Chilli Champion 2012.
We've got a fearsome line-up of competitors that includes street food heroes Lucky Chip and The Ribman, food writers Gizzi Erskine and Tom Parker Bowles, Bombay cafe Dishoom, Angela Hartnett and the Whitechapel Gallery Dining Room, Stevie Parle and Emma Grazette (Spice Trip) and food blogger Will Yates
Alongside the chilli we've got DJs and live music, tequila and Texan beers from the Milk & Honey festival bar and sweet treats from Gelupo and Meringue Girls. It will all take place in a great new venue, Oval Space, close to Broadway Market.
Tickets are £40 to taste all nine chillies and include two Texan beers, a tequila cocktail, Gelupo ice cream and a kiss from the Meringue Girls. We also have a few food only tickets for the noon tasting; these are £30 to taste all chillies and include Gelupo ice cream and a kiss from the meringue girls.
