Some of the hottest chilli products on sale on the day were Jethro’s ‘Naga Fire’ sauce, Fat Man Chilli’s ‘Scorchio’ sauce and the Chilli Alchemist’s range of spicy sauces.

As well as plenty of stalls showcasing chilli, many other foods were available to sample including pies, cheeses, frozen yogurt and various hot takeaway food.

A Waddesdon Manor spokesman said: “We had a very good turnout - even better than 2016.

“There were 70 stalls this year meaning the event was on a much larger scale.
