Contestants with a strong stomach are invited to put their taste buds to the test and tackle some treats with a difference.

A selection of weird and wonderful exotic delicacies from around the world will be cooked up and offered to people with a brave constitution to try.

The Extreme Food Challenge event is taking place on Saturday, March 30 as part of the Brighton and Hove Food and Drink Festival.

Organisers are keeping tight-lipped over exactly what is on the menu so people can have a surprise on the day, but promise some heat, some very unusual canapes and things to make you squirm.

Festival committee member Nathalie Gomez de Vera and Moshimo head chef Donna Vargas, who will be cooking up the treats, were joined by contestants Joseph Long and Claire Beveridge for the challenge’s official launch.

Organisers are looking for people to join them and take on the challenge, which takes place at the Live Food Show Marquee in Victoria Gardens at 5pm.

Anyone interested in taking part should visit www.brightonfoodfestival.com.

Thanks. I just had a look at their site and they claim they were never a chain and had nothing to do with the London ones, which is clearly a lie because the website had menus for London AND Brighton. So why they are denying it now is perplexing.
