£500 Prize


We’ve got a brand new food event coming up in May and we need your help to name it please.

It will be a celebration of the mighty chilli pepper featuring over 20 chefs, restaurants and street food traders all cooking food that highlights the heat and flavour of this glorious pleasure-giving vegetable/spice. It’s all happening in Dalston Yard on Fri/Sat 09/10 May and you are invited.

We were going to call it ‘The Big Chilli’ but at the moment the project name is ‘Chilli Feast’; we may stick with this but we’re hoping you can come up with something better. If you do and we use it, there is a £500 cash prize and 10 free tickets for the event so you can bring your mum and all her friends along and go, “Look mum! It’s called [your brilliant name] and I came up with that.”

We think it should probably have ‘Chilli’ in the name but it is not essential. Also, I think the best event names are the (usually made up or compound) ones that come to mean only one thing and this is true, for example, for Ribstock and Meatopia. But don’t let that narrow your ideas, we’re interested in anything and every idea you might have.

So anyway, make your mum proud and tweet us up with some brilliant names please and make sure you use the #ChilliFeast hashtag.

Thank you we love you.


P.S. I think this is self-evident but if more than one of you come up with the same name and we end up using it, the first to tweet me with it wins.

Hard to compete with Chilli-con-carnage & The Chilliad really. Couple ideas:


Chilli Elliot (ignore - had to write it down)

The Chilli Isles (ignore that too)

Chillidelphia (I'll stop)

@Tweat_Up loving Chillipalooza...

but how about...
Chillibriate = Chilli + Inebriate, for that heady euphoria you get from eating so many chillies!

Chillmeleon = Chilli + Chameleon, because you'll be as red as a chilli afterwards!

Chilli Jam = gettin' all those chilli chefs together for a 'jam' session

will come back if i think of any more!
