Chile Pepper Magazine Has Changed Hands

I am pleased to announce that Goodman Media Group has completed its acquisition of Chile Pepper Magazine, ZestFest and The Fiery Food Challenge from Lifestyle Media Inc. Chile Pepper has been a leading publication in the food category for 20 years, and its dynamic live events have helped bring the magic of Chile Pepper to life.

GMG brings its 30 years of publishing and event management experience to the Chile Pepper franchise. Our dedicated team of professionals is committed to improving and expanding Chile Pepper, ZestFest and FFC so that the passion for a zesty life can be shared more often with an expanding, international audience of enthusiasts. Whether you are a chef, backyard barbequer, sauce/rub/marinade manufacturer, restaurant owner, restaurant diner, or just like a little heat to invigorate your palate, our magazine and events will fuel your fire for all things zesty.

P.S. our 2006 Fiery Food Challenge starts on August 30th and wraps up with our famous Golden Chile Awards Banquet at ZestFest September 8-10 in Fort Worth, Texas. Enter now to compete for your Golden Chile Award or sign up to exhibit at ZestFest where you can share your passion with trade buyers as well as thousands of Chile Heads.
