The Chilli People

In the midst of a pandemic, in a kitchen in Edinburgh, Pete found a dusty Chinese cookbook in the back of his cupboard. He had a flick through, and one recipe caught his eye. After a few hours and some adjustments, he had made a bottle of ruby red, generously warm and lightly spicy chilli oil.

It wasn’t long before the rest of us tried it, and once we did, we didn’t stop. We joked that we needed to take it to the masses. That joke is still going, and it is why you’re reading this now.
