Cheese and Chilli Fest – Swindon 2019

Monday mornings following a festival are typically a struggle. De-camping the weekends’ car-load of boxes, gazebos, signage and stock is a laborious necessity. Except for today. For today, I still have a massive spring in my step following the Swindon Cheese and Chilli Festival

The Garlic Fire Sauce was VERY popular at the weekend.

The weather was perfect, the crowds turned out in their thousands – and they were a real decent bunch – interested in the products, knowledgable, engaging and there for a good time! 

If that wasn’t enough reason for my upbeat Monday morning, sales were up too. 👍🏻

Furthermore, my fellow traders were all on good form too, we had lots of laughs and superb comradery which gets stronger each event. Name dropping Chilli Olly & Chilli Pepper Perrett, Sico, and the Smoking Crow Guys here.

So, all in all a glorious event. Oh wait, there was one other thing…

My first ever 1st place GOLD MEDAL 😊🥇 which was awarded to my amazing ‘Garlic Fire’ in the mild category. (I also got a 3rd place bronze medal for Smokin’ Fire in the medium section).

I’m overjoyed, beyond delighted. Not least of all, because these are voted for by the visiting public in the tasting tent, but also because there are so many awesome products in each category, created by some of the biggest names and most talented Chilli chefs in the country.

And here’s me, little Pepper Jar Creations, setting the festivals on Fire. 

Thank you Swindon from the bottom of my heart 🌶
