The reason for their visit was to discover some of the truths and myths behind the fascination so many people have for this fiery gourmet ingredient to include in Omid’s new culinary programme ‘Hot and Dangerous’.

Despite his fame as a funny man, Omid’s has never found the UK’s passion for chillies in the slightest amusing. He commented,“I grew up with Iranian cuisine which is mostly meat and rice and we don’t like chillies at all, in fact I absolutely hate chillies. But I love my food and I’m hoping that in making this programme I can discover another new culinary world.”

Bedfordshire is the chilli capital of the UK and Joanna and Shawn are recognised as leading experts in growing and cooking with chillies. Edible Ornamentals grow over 100 varieties of chillies, so a visit to the nursery was a perfect opportunity for Omid to try a range of chillies from the mildest to the super hot.

Shawn commented,“I’ll give Omid his due because he was willing to try several raw chillies while the cameras were rolling despite saying he has never been a fan of chillies. We started with some of the milder chillies and then went on to the hotter ones.

His jaw dropped when we got to the Trinidad Scorpion as it measures over 2 million on the Scoville heat scale, and it was fortunate he had a first aider ready to rush in if he needed assistance. Omid bravely battled on and after recovering from eating the Scorpion, he admitted that it was absolutely evil, which is quite apt as the programme is due to go out on Halloween night.”

‘Hot and Dangerous with Omid Djalili’ is a will be broadcast on Quest TV on Friday 31st October at 9pm.

Joanna and husband Shawn started growing chillies when they moved to the UK in 1996, and their chilli plants and sauces quickly gained in popularity.
