To say I’m passionate about chillis would be an understatement….. in fact my family and friends would say it’s an obssesion !
As far back as I can remember, I’ve always liked hot and spicey food….. I was the stereotypical big man in any Indian restaurant..
“I’ll have a Vindaloo or Phall” …or “give me the hottest curry you can make”, You know the type !
The thing is…I actually enjoyed these hot curries ! I used to buy bag loads of supermarket chillis, and eat them with everything.
My transition to becoming a proper chillihead started when my brother bought me a chilli growing kit about 15 years ago. It contained all you need to grow 6 plants… well, once I’d got my plants going..I was reading books about chillis, and I got on the internet for advice, eventually signing up to a couple of chilli forums. The knowledge I gained from these forums was priceless…. different varieties,tips on growing etc…. I was proper hooked !
I’ve grown all sorts of chillis over the years, but concentrate mainly on the superhot chinense varieties. However, I do grow other varieties of chilli, My favourite chilli is the Fatalli.
I regularly work for my good mate Woody from Firefoods,http://www.firefoods.co.uk/ doing shows & events, and through these I’ve met some great folk from the chilli world.
