Mild to very hot moderations of sauces, jellies, salsas, relishes, chutneys, and marinades are also on the menu for guests to dip into.
To complement their food, guests can sip down a spicy selection of beverages at the chile liquid bar, which offers up drinks like chile mojitos, chile cider, chile shooters, chile martinis, and chile Pimms.
At 3:30 p.m each afternoon, there is a chile eating competition for those daring enough to ingest some fiercely hot peppers.
