HOW TO GET THE HEAT ON CHILL
Peri-Peri is world famous, and continues to grow in popularity, while serving up some good ching for your kitchen. So what do you do when the heat is too real and you have a diner frantically waving their hand in front of their mouth, trying to self-cool down? The culprit behind this red-hot kick is more often than not a compound in the chilli called capsaicin.
It happens chef, capsaicin sometimes gets the best of your diners, and we want to help you, your staff and ultimately your diners, get through thePeri-Peri meltdown like true chilli champs. When you have a diner that underestimates the kick of mild, or the kick of HOT, and orders a Peri-Peri meal that serves fire beyond their threshold, it's important to get them off a discomforting experience and back onto an enjoyable one.
Here's what you can do when the Peri-Peri kicks some serious punches and you're about to have a K.O. diner on your hands. Offer them an accompaniment that not only compliments the meal but also assists in neutralising too much chilli power. Here are your chilli fighters:
• A sweet late harvest wine
• Sparkling grape juice
• Sparkling apple juice
• Dairy based drinks
• Serve your Peri-Peri menu items with lemon slices on the side
• Plate up with starchy bread as a side
• Offer a complimentary side of plain yoghurt when you know you are serving up a chilli-chilli bang-bang dish
