The Chilli Pickle wins hot award!

The Chili Pickle is one of Brighton's newest restaurants but they are already making a name for themselves as their chef Alun Sperring has just won the XXX mints Can You Handle the Heat competition for his Oxtail Madras.

This is a fiercely contested national competition so huge congratulations to Alun. Personally speaking it sounds like it was also a victory for common sense as one of the other competitor's dish included a pepper that was 100 times hotter then a Jalapeno and the judges could barely manage one mouthful and have advised that it should not be served in restaurants, which I can't qutie see the point of.

Whereas The Chilli Pickle use local Sussex produce and while their dish was hot it was also packed full of flavour, so a well-earned win there for Alun. Therefore next time you are visiting Brighton make sure you pop in and try some award winning curry.
