PERi-PERi Cup!

In the world of casual dining and culinary challenges, the Peri-Peri Cup has emerged as a flavorful and competitive event. Sponsored by the famous restaurant chain Nando's, known for its Afro-Portuguese style chicken dishes seasoned with Peri-Peri chilis, the Peri-Peri Cup encapsulates the essence of spirited competition and community engagement. If you're a fan of Nando's or just love a bit of spicy competition, read on to discover what the Peri-Peri Cup is all about.

The Origin of the Peri-Peri Cup

The Peri-Peri Cup is a tournament hosted by Nando's that celebrates the restaurant's iconic Peri-Peri flavor, with a focus on bringing people together for a fun and fiery experience. This event not only honors the unique taste of Nando's signature dishes but also fosters a sense of community through its friendly, competitive nature.

A Culinary Contest

At its core, the Peri-Peri Cup is a culinary contest where participants strive for custom medals and the ultimate bragging rights. Contestants are often tasked with creating their own unique dishes using Nando's Peri-Peri sauces or showcasing their ability to handle the heat by consuming increasingly spicy levels of Peri-Peri-flavored offerings.

The Heat of Competition

The Peri-Peri Cup is not just about who can handle the spiciest chicken or create the tastiest dish; it's a celebration of culinary skill and creativity. Competitors come from various backgrounds, each bringing their unique flair to the table, quite literally. The event provides a platform for both amateur and professional cooks to showcase their passion for food and their love for the Peri-Peri flavor.

Custom Medals and Prizes

One of the highlights of the Peri-Peri Cup is the custom medals awarded to winners. Nando’s contacted us to create medals for the PERi-PERi Cup! 

Their annual PERi-PERi Cup was held in London on the 22nd September with Teams of “Nandocas”. 

Employees from restaurants across the UK & Ireland, also known as 'Nandocas ', came together for a celebration, to have fun and to meet other “Nandocas” from other restaurants! 'Nandocas' are the heart and soul of Nando's, and this event is a way to appreciate their hard work and dedication.

These custom medals are a hefty 5mm thick with a high quality two-sided custom design ribbon. It was a pleasure to be asked to create these top quality medals for a great event!

Community Engagement

The Peri-Peri Cup is more than just a competition; it's an opportunity for Nando's to engage with the community and its customers. Through this event, the restaurant chain reinforces its commitment to creating memorable experiences around their food and the Peri-Peri flavor that has become synonymous with their brand.

It's an event that unites people through their love of food, spice, and friendly competition. Whether you're a participant or a spectator, the Peri-Peri Cup invites you to bond over shared challenges and culinary adventures, creating a sense of community that lasts beyond the event.
