One of the most exciting things in 2016 is the growth craft beers

I love adding chilli to my food.

When I go out to eat, I always ask for Chilli.

I've been meeting with a bunch of guys for breakfast every Friday Morning for over 5 years.

We've been going there for so many years, as soon as we walk in they starting cooking our breakfast. I not sure if they have a menu because I haven't seen one for years.

So I get a Large Cappuccino with a Bacon & Egg Sandwich. It’s a good combination with Crispy Bacon, Runny Fried Egg & Grilled Tomato on Turkish Bread.

Before I bit into my Bacon & Egg Sandwich, I put the lid off & squirt Tabasco Sauce all over the egg.

Eggs & Chilli a perfect match.

Chilli enhances the flavour adds a pop & a zing to your food.

Since Columbus Discovered Chillis in 1492 on his travels to Americas, Chillis have become a staple flavour throughout most cultures.

So whether you're eating Thai, Indian, Middle Eastern, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, or even Hungarian you'll find these dishes rely on Chilli to turn bland into Wow.

There are over 3000 varieties of Chillis with each has different flavours & heat intensity.

Chefs are using chilli in their dishes. There also creating sauces & Chilli Jams to complement dishes.

If you think Chilli Sauces is just a new idea, you would be wrong.

Tabasco Sauce was first sold in 1869

Tabasco Sauce was first sold in 1869

Edmund McIlhenny was a banker in Louisiana. The Banking industry was almost wiped out after the Civil War. McIlhenny grew peppers and developed a pepper recipe from 1866-1868, and sold his first Tabasco Sauce in 1869.

I think Chilli makes food taste better. It's more than just the extra punch of heat it turns ordinary into delightful.

What makes Chilli so hot?

The main source of heat in chillies comes from the levels of capsaicinoids. Weather conditions, growing conditions, and age can all affect the amount capsaicinoids found in the fruit.

The more capsaicinoids, the more heat you get. One of the capsaicinoids is capsicum.

I tell my kids Chillis good for them. I'm not sure they believe me, but the latest medical evidence back this up.

“A study of more than 16,000 people in the United States revealed that individuals who consumed red chilli peppers had a lower risk of death from all causes over an average of 18 years than those who did not eat the spicy food… ...Compared with participants who did not consume hot red chili peppers, those who did were found to be at a 13 percent reduced risk of all-cause mortality.” Eating hot red chili peppers may help us live longer”
Study co-authors Mustafa Chopan and Benjamin Littenberg, both from the University of Vermont College of Medicine

We call them Capsicums in Australia, overseas they call them Bell Peppers
