Can't stand the heat - get out off the kitchen
The Melbourne Chilli Eating Championship 2018 is on again Saturday 3 March 2018, presented by the B.EAST in Brunswick East and Melbourne Hot Sauce.

The Chilli Championship will commence at 2pm. If you think you've got what it takes to handle the heat, why not enter? Entry is on a first-in, best dressed basis with only 24 competitor spots available. The registration fee is $10 and you'll need to sign an indemnity waiver upon payment of the fee to compete.

There will be 2 heats of 12 rounds starting off mild and getting progressively hotter and hotter. Rounds will vary from fresh chilli to chilli spiked foods, starting with Jalapenos, and moving through the range to Carolina Reapers and others.
