Chalk and cheese may be worlds apart, but cheese and chilli make a dream team – so much so, in fact, that a whole festival is dedicated to this perfect pairing. At this event at Bournemouth Sports Club in Christchurch, right next to Bournemouth Airport, you can try and buy local cheeses and chillies of all strengths, listen to informative talks about these two tasty foods, enjoy some live music, and join in activities such as wine-tasting.
Younger visitors will be kept busy at the free circus skills workshops, magic shows and balloon-building sessions, and can let off steam playing a game of zorb football, hurtling down the huge inflatable slide or having a go on the rides at the fun fair. Grown-ups will enjoy having a mooch around the stalls selling locally produced crafts and food, and, if they’ve done too much chilli-tasting, can cool down with a refreshing pint at the Ringwood Brewery-sponsored beer festival in the Club House. Those who think their tastebuds are up to the challenge, meanwhile, can enter the chilli-eating competition. It seems cheese and chilli are a match made in foodie heaven.
