Marc Elliott Chef/Owner

I'm a Chilli head with a passion for all things hot & spicy

Why Flavour Before Fire?

I hand make & sell a variety of quality Chilli products including sauces, marinades, preserves & powders using some of the worlds hottest chillies. All Flavour Before Fire products are gluten free & none contain any Chilli extracts, thickeners, gums or artificial preservatives. They’re all natural – just how I like it.

As well as the cooking & development side of the business – I also grow a variety of Chillies in a polytunnel at my allotment, including the Habanero, the 7 pot & the worlds hottest Chilli – the Carolina Reaper to name a few. 

I have traded at some great events so far in 2019 including Emporium at the Boiler shop, the countryside fair at Kirkley hall, the North East Chilli festival & the East midlands chilli festival & I also organised Newcastle’s newest Chilli festival – The Tyne Burner at Tyne Bank Brewery on 12/10/19. This was a great success & Tyne burner will be back in 2020!

Most weekends you can find me setup at Tynemouth market (Tynemouth Metro station) on the platform 1. Just look out for the gazebo!
