"The Culinary Crucible: The Spice of Life" is a Culinary Crucible Event in Twisted Wonderland that features Kalim Al-Asim and Trey Clover. It is the second cooking event in the game, requiring players to send their cards out to gather ingredients for a fixed time so that they can cook various dishes. The story consists of a prologue and epilogue which briefly explore Kalim and Trey's experiences in the cooking elective class which teaches students how to cook.

As the event's name implies, all of the dishes featured in this event are spicy. They all use a common ingredient: chili powder. Each dish, high score, skill, and recipe can be viewed in the Album, under the Culinary Crucible tab.
