A UQ student whose favourite method of procrastination is getting out of the house and enjoying what Brisbane has to offer.
Who will be the chilli master?
Paddington restaurant Kettle & Tin is bringing the heat to the hilly suburb on March 23 with their second annual Chilli Cook-off.
A handful of chefs from around Brisbane will be battling it out in Kettle & Tin's backyard for the much coveted title of chilli master. For $10 you join the fun and sample all the chillis on offer, each of which will be unique and undoubtedly delicious. There might even be a vegetarian option on offer as there was last year.
Anise took home the trophy last year with their version of the spicy Tex-Mex favourite and will be back to defend their title alongside Statler & Waldorf Gastronomy Pub among other yet to be announce contenders.
While it will of course be all about the chilli there will also be pickles from Picklehead Pickles to accompany the fiery bowls of deliciousness, cold beers from Burleigh Brewery to wash it all down and 'Bloody Jerry's,' a combination of spiced rum from Sailor Jerry Australia and ginger beer from CAPI with a dash of chilli pepper, to top off the well rounded spicy feast.
Official judges and fellow chilli tasters for the event will be Kettle & Tin's executive chef Frazer Henderson and E'cco Bistro's Phillip Johnson, but the real taste-testers will be the public. Two trophies are up for grabs and attendees will have the opportunity to put in their vote for the best chilli in the People's Choice while the celebrity chefs decide on the winner of the Judge's Choice.
So for a Sunday lunch with a difference join the fun and sample some first class chilli in Paddington's best backyard. I'll certainly be heading along to get my fill! Check Kettle & Tin's Facebook event page for more information as the it gets closer to the date.
