Sue Bradshaw, BID Huntingdon Manager, explains, “The last two years’ events proved so popular and we’re happy to host such a fun day again. People seem to like to test their heat taste buds but there are also some milder versions for more sensitive palates.”

There is plenty to eat, drink, taste and buy so bring your friends and family for a spicy day out. Admission is FREE.” Information about Chilli Fest UK is at www.chillifest.net and Twitter @chilli_festival.

Do you know your chillies?
•           Be careful when trying new chillies as the burning sensation of some, like the Chiltepin, is explosive and subsides quickly whereas the heat of others, like the Habanero, builds slowly.

  • Drinking milk or putting a spoonful of yoghurt in your mouth is the best way to relieve the burning sensation of chillies.
  • Chillies can help fight off winter colds and eating them releases endorphins that help lift the spirits. They’re contain more Vitamin C than oranges, more Vitamin A than carrots and such high levels of Vitamin D that some athletes eat them prior to exercising to reduce the risk of injury.
