Handling the Heat
An Introduction to the Savours of Chilli Peppers
My workshops are designed to introduce you to the huge diversity of chillies that exist and to master their heat to good effect. Using the right techniques, and proportions you can achieve the perfect balance within a dish, and create something exciting and flavoursome that everyone can enjoy.
Have no Fear! If you like a grind of black pepper on your food there is every reason you would enjoy many of the milder chillies, or even some of the hotter varieties handled in particular ways. However if you are a lover of the heat their will definitely be plenty for you too. I will be sharing lots of tips and tricks to help you satisfy the whole family whatever their palate.
Chillies are very good for you, they are packed with Vitamin C. Green chillies have up to five times more vitamin C gram for gram than oranges! They are also a good source of most B vitamins, vitamin B6 in particular. They are very high in potassium, magnesium and iron. Their high vitamin C content can also substantially increase the uptake of iron from other ingredients, such as beans and grains.
Not only are they good for you but chillies are the ultimate feel-good ingredient! It is the capsaicin in chillies that provoke the sensation of heat and the body reacts by releasing endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling.
So why not come along to one of my workshops and learn how to leave the bland behind!
Handling the Heat is back!
