Where Food is Serious Business

About Us

We make you happy through food at FriedChillies. And we do this across multiple media platforms from broadcast, web, social networks to ground events.

Food in all its alluring and appetizing forms.

We think there are endless ways to showcase food be it recipes, eating habits or just people obsessing about it. So we have shows to suit the foodie in everyone (check our new IPTV shows here). For articles, reviews, gadgets, cooking tips and much, much more come visit us at Friedchillies.com and we guarantee you’ll go away hungry for more. Like us.
