Chilli Festival Harvest the Heat Is Coming to Fremantle

Dingo Chilli

A winter chilli festival is coming to Fremantle. Presented by The Sunshine Harvester Works and local not-for-profit group WA Chilli Seed Exchange, Harvest the Heat will bring together chefs and chilli sauce and product makers. Fresh chillies from Carnarvon will also be for sale.

One of the makers attending will be Leigh Nash of Dingo Sauce Co, a project that began while Nash was head chef at Cottesloe institution Vans. Today, Dingo sauces are a familiar sight at local markets and gourmet delis and cafes around the country. The brand’s 13 flavours span the heat scale from sweet chilli and Sriracha to “Widow Maker”: a brutal sauce made using six of the planet’s hottest chilli varieties.
