Some like it hot. This is a festival for them

Love chillis and flavoursome herbs?

The 12th annual Herb and Chilli Festival promises a weekend of mouth-tingling experiences, live music, and entertainment.

To be held over the weekend of March 16-17 at Wandin in the Yarra Valey, the event will feature an array of spicy product, competitions, along with a line-up of food trucks and market stalls.

Founded in 2012 by Clive and Di Larkman, owners of Romantic Nursery, the Herb and Chilli Festival aims to showcase some of Australia's finest herb and chilli products.

“Our event is about bringing people together who have a love for flavour and spice," says event founder Clive Larkman.

"It introduces people to the world of herbs and chillies; not just in their food but also in drinks, general health and the many cultures for which they are basic parts of life.”

Newcomers will include chilli-infused ice creams crafted by Bill Choi from Mrs C Chilli Oil.

Hot Sauce Alley returns, expanding from eight to 11 vendors and each one will unveil at least one new hot sauce product.

Flavours will range from Africa to Tibet, Cambodia to Jamaica, and Sri Lanka,

The festival also aims to ensure that younger audience members are entertained, with free activities like horse riding, jumping castles and face painting.
