This was our second year trading at Eastnor Castle Chilli Festival and it was lovely to have repeat customers looking for us. I took a few minutes out to walk the Chillee Dog (Cassie) and watch the chilli eating competition. As always the lads from the Clifton Chilli Club never disappoint.

As I watched, cheering on our chilli friend, Nick (Head Gardener at Eastnor Castle) it was amazing to witness the support the audience were giving the willing victims; Of course the contestants where incredible, totally nuts, but incredible.
Walking back into the stately courtyard, full of wonderful chilli stalls, wonderful hot food smells from India, Mexico, Thailand, USA and good old blighty too.
After an evening of a few bevies and sampling some chilli wares the Clifton Chilli lads brought back from their trop to NYC, we woke to a beautiful blue sky and
There is always a touch of sadness towards the end of the second day, well for me anyway. I love my chilli family and it’s hard to say goodbye until the next time (Old softie!).
This time it’s Devon Chilli Fiesta at RHS Rosemoor. Now in its second year, it’s set in yet another stunning location.
Anyone in the South West it’s a great place to enjoy an early chilli festival in our area, before the main ones take place in August/September.
Well I’ve waffled enough, so best get on with some work, before Mr Chillees finds me sitting down!
Before I go I want to give a big thank you to all our Chilli play mates, who made the weekend a great one; The Clifton Lads, The Bath Pig-lets, Mr Friz and The Lurch.
Until next time, hope to see you at one of our events.
