Did you know that today is National Chilli Day?

Who doesn’t like Chilli? So what better way to enjoy it on one of the coldest months of the year! On Thursday 27th February 2014, the Nation can share their love of chilli and forget about the wintery weather for one day as they embrace in the great bowl of red. Beginning in the 18th Century, historians are under firm belief that three different cultures got together in Texas and believed they could produce the best bowl of chilli, sparking a competition. To celebrate this piece of history, indulge in a glorious spicy supreme and forget the sub zero temperatures outside your window.
