Bringing heat to the kitchen

Chillies or chilli peppers are members of the nightshade family and are known for the heat they impart to foods and drinks.

With the sheer variety of chillies available, they range from mild, almost sweet, to sometimes too hot to handle! The heat of chillies is measured on the Scoville scale, where 0 is sweet and 80,000 and over is representative of the extremely hot habanero and scotch bonnet chillies.

Whilst normally associated with hot curries, chillies can be used in sweet dishes too, adding a layer of complexity to the flavour. Have you ever tried chilli chocolate or chilli ice cream?
