Britons love it hot and spicyJuly 15th, 2010 - 2:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 15 (IANS) The zooming sales of chillies in Britain show that Britons increasingly prefer hot and spicy food.
Chilli farmers have increased their output following demand from foodies.
Salvatore Genovese, a farmer, sends out a million Dorset Naga chillies from his farm in Blunham, Beds, every week.
Salvatore said the Dorset Naga variety is 20 times hotter than a vindaloo curry and it is becoming a mainstream ingredient.
“It’s amazing how quickly the UK has developed a chilli culture. It’s a far cry from meat and two veg or when fish and chips was our favourite dish,” Daily Express Thursday quoted him as saying.
