In the culinary world, ghost chili peppers are considered one of the hottest peppers in the world. Last week, 1,000 hot pepper enthusiasts gathered in the capitol city of Denmark to each eat one ghost chili pepper, all at the same time. The group was gathered by Claus Pilgaard as a way to promote his new book. Participants each had their own way of cooling themselves down after eating the ghost chillie whether it be a beer, milk, yogurt or dancing.
