Jamie Oliver’s way of punishing his child is apparently quite fiery.

By that we don’t mean he sets his daughter Poppy on fire but rather he tricks her into eating really hot peppers, according to Mail Online.

The famous chef reportedly spoke about his unique method of discipline at a BBC Good Food Show.

‘Poppy was quite disrespectful and rude to me and she pushed her luck. In my day I would have got a bit of a telling-off but you are not allowed to do that,’ he said.

‘Five minutes later she thought I had forgotten and I hadn’t. She asked for an apple.

‘I cut it up into several pieces and rubbed it with Scotch Bonnet and it worked a treat. She ran up to mum and said, “This is peppery.” I was in the corner laughing.’

Unsurprisingly his wife Jools wasn’t that happy about it, according to reports, and warned him not to do it again.

But Oliver thought it was the best way to discipline his kids considering the social climate these days.

He reportedly added: ‘It is not very popular beating kids any more, it’s not very fashionable and you are not allowed to do it and if you are a celebrity chef like me it does not look very good in the paper. So you need a few options.’

And if you thought the alleged punishment wasn’t that severe just bear in mind Scotch Bonnet peppers can be more than 100 time stronger than jalapeños.
