In Willington, things are really hotting up this weekend as annual chilli fest is held. Frosts Garden Centre fest is now on 16th August and 17th August (Saturday and Sunday), with a line-up that includes thirty stalls, a free children’s chilli hunt, a chilli sauce making contest and most importantly musical entertainment.
On Saturday, there would be acts from Mariachi Los Charros, a conventional Mexican Mariachi group, and on Sunday Los Musicos would dazzle the audience with their Latin music. Plus Frosts is looking for all amateur chefs to participate in their chilli recipe contest – the search is on for the most okay homemade chilli chutneys, jams, pickles and sauces, to win a scorching £50 prize as well as the honored title of Chilli Recipe Champion for Frosts 2014 at Willington.
The visitors would be able to see and buy more than twenty five verities of chilli plants that includes Trinidad Scorpion, Bhut Jolokia, Morouga Red, Brain Strain, Scotch Bonnet and Cornish Naga, with experts on hand to offer any advice.
Frosts’ managing director James Frost told that the chilli fest started as a small event 5 years ago and now it has become a very pop attraction and it continues to develop every year. This year would be fantastic and they are very confident that it would blow the roof off. People could spend as long as they like soaking up their live music while perusing their vast range of chilli products, and this year they have lots more for children to get involved with.
