Mark the date – Chillibraní & Apetit piknik 2017: September 2 at the swimming pool complex Riviéra.
Two popular events will be united for the first time – the new festival attracts food and drink lovers, chefs, farmers, and culinary specialists who gather at one place to celebrate the variety of spicy and non-spicy food and recipes.
Chillibraní brings a spicy zest to Apetit Piknik festival, showing that chili peppers and hot spices are not meant to burn your palate but enhance the experience.
Workshops, lectures, lessons of food photography with Canon, cooking shows, contests… We look forward to the shows of Tejinder Riar (chef of restaurant Flavours in Brno), Jana Bilíková with Přemek Forejt (creative chef from Ambiente and chef of Entrée), Oldřich Sahajdák (Michelin star chef of La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise) and Peter Ocknecht – a trendsetter of insect on plate.
Fifty contestants will compete for the title of ‘Chilližrout 2017’ in the Championship of Czech and Slovak republic in eating spicy peppers.
Beer enthusiasts, also known as Czechs, will have an opportunity of flushing down the burn after chili experiments with six different kinds of beer. If you are not a fan of a malty drink, there is always a choice of cider.
The festival promises not to have long queues with ten booths scattered around the Riviéra area.
“In Brno, there has recently arisen an incredible number of high-quality diners, bars and cafes. I do not doubt that we will discover a lot of new and fresh faces,“ editor in chief of Apetit magazine, Marie Holobrádková says.
If the weather permits, the swimming pools will be open!
To avoid lines for the tickets, order them online for 120 crowns.
When: September 2, 11:00 – 24:00
Where: Swimming pool Riviera, Bauerova 322/7
