O/T - ignore this unless you're Geoff, or unless you're willing to tell me how to send people rep comments, cuz i don't know how.
Dude on the show is American, married to a Brit. They have an organic farm. I guess it does make actual sense (the chili + British thing) but I just think of Dorset as all soft rolling fields and bouncy lambs and whelks at the seaside. Not face-ripping chili.It could be the same guy. I live very close to HFW (10 miles, I think). The British love of the curry (and Phaal, Vindaloo) makes the combination a natural one, I'd have said.
