Poblanos at 50 paces! From seriously hot to subtle and spicy, eight chefs will be competing to see who makes the meanest chilli on Saturday November 17 – and here’s your chance to help restaurateur and tv presenter John Torode with the judging. Put on by @Tweat_Up, who arrange Twitter-fuelled food meet ups, the Chilli Stand Off will take place at Hackney warehouse The Oval. There will also be a cocktail bar from Soho’s Milk & Honey as well as ice creams from Gelupo. Tickets, costing £40, include a sample of all eight chillies, two beers, a tequila cocktail and an ice cream. ¡Buen provecho!
Tickets for Chilli Stand Off are available at eventbrite.co.uk.
