What is it?
The UK’s first festival dedicated to chilli con carne will take place on Thursday 14th September in Brixton.
Chilli Con Carnival at Brixton Beach, will be partnering with Pritesh Mody from the critically acclaimed World of Zing, to put the spice into September with an event dedicated to the warming dish.
World of Zing will be showcasing their range of rare chillies from around the world, as well as holding hot sauce making classes where customers will have the chance to make their own hot sauce to take home with them. Visitors will be able to taste more than 25 rare chillies to find their perfect spice partner and use them to make either a pineapple and habanero table sauce or a chilli ketchup.
Brixton Beach will welcome a parade of one-off hot dishes from their resident street food vendors including Nanban’s miso aubergine and pork cheek chilli, and Lambassadors’ lamb chilli con carne on chips. All dishes will cost £5 and there will also be plenty of frozen cocktails on tap to help with the burn.
