From burgers that have had their heat levels amplified, to fiery fried chicken, warming desserts and spicy margaritas aplenty, there's something to tickle and tantalise all tastebuds. These dishes and drinks are bringing the heat, upping the spice stakes and serving flaming flavours to warm you up. 

Make sure to rate the spice levels of each participating drink and dish you try for your chance to be in to win an incredible city centre staycation. All the details, including terms and conditions, can be found at turnuptheheat.nz

This event is proud to be part of the Turn Up The Heat festival in Christchurch Central City this August. It's a month full of roaming characters, comedy, cabaret, drag, variety shows, family events, musical theatre and fiery food.
