This year the Fiery Foods Show will host multi-media demonstrations and a margarita challenge for the first time. Its official mascot, Chile the Kid will return, greeting guests throughout the weekend.
Multimedia presentations Saturday and Sunday will include a Tequila Demonstration by mixologist Greg Mays; Kelly Urig on her book, New Mexico Chiles: History, Legend and Lore; Dave DeWitt on his book, The Field Guide to Peppers; and Tim Ziegler on Spices & Chiles in Regional and Ethnic Cuisines.
While many exhibitors will display their award-winning selections, others will showcase first-time products. Attendees can also enjoy select Scovie Award-winning products, recognized as the top fiery food products in the world. The annual competition organized by the producers of the Fiery Foods Show is one of the most competitive blind tasted food competitions in the U.S., and receives hundreds of entries each year.
