Remember that episode of The Simpsons in which Homer attends the Chilli Cook-Off only to find himself on a shamanistic quest to find true enlightenment?
Well, if you get on down to The Station this weekend you too may find your spirit animal at the 2021 Newcastle Chilli Festival.
While you may not find the Guatemalan Insanity Peppers that Homer imbibed, this hottest fest in town will feature more chilli-infused food and chilli products than you can poke a stick at.
In fact, you will find all manner of spicy fare on offer from the likes of Noodle Incident, Yummy Time Dumpling, Dan’s Jerk Joint, The German Kitchen, Mandalong Farm, Linda’s Chilli Relish, The Hot Chilli Woman and more.
Those with Scoville averse tastebuds need not fear because there will also be an array of food trucks serving up an array of more ‘temperate’ fare along with lashings of wine and beer to cool your palette.
The popular festival will also feature market stalls, live music and you can watch was the bravest souls in Newcastle go head to head in a steam-out-of-the-ears inducing Chilli Eating Competition.
So, if you’d like to spice up your life, get along to the 2021 Newcastle Chilli Festival because it promises to be the hottest day of the year
