Edible Ornamentals? Garden centres and nurseries? The connection?
Well, Edible Ornamentals is unique in the world of garden centres and nurseries because we specialise in chilli plants (we grow over 40 varieties) and vegetables. Indeed, we run the one of the largest chilli farms in the UK, right here in Chawston, near St Neots. Our farm shop has lots of local produce and our market garden is abundant with delicious, fresh vegetables.
Our Unique New Restaurant August 2013
The Edible Kitchen
A range of chilli-based dishes created from Joanna’s own recipes are unusual and use chillies of differing heat. People who like sizzling hot dishes will be tempted to try spicy chicken wings and hot legs which are marinated in Joanna’s home made Inferno chilli sauce. Those with gentler taste buds will enjoy the Chilli Poppers which are fresh Jalapeno peppers stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, while chilli fans wishing to take a risk can try the Pimento De Padrone, which are a Spanish tapas chilli dish in which most are mild, but one in ten is mind-blowingly hot.
The Edible Kitchen Restaurant is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 4pm.
Edible Ornamentals is St Neots' first 'Pick Your Own Vegetable' centre, where you can pick a wide range of the freshest of seasonal vegetables straight from the plant. These include fresh peppers, spinach, Swiss chard, lettuce, cabbage, dwarf French beans, tomatoes, sweet corn and an unusual variety of long aubergines.
Joanna and Shawn Plumb founded Edible Ornamentals in 2001. "We're passionate, slightly obsessive chilli growers," they say." On our chilli farm we raise fresh chillies, stunning chilli plants and mouth watering fiery sauces.
Our ethos is simple: we grow and cook chillies with skill and passion - and our fresh-grown chillies make the most scrumptious sauces and chutneys."
Joanna makes numerous radio and television appearances - you may have heard her on Radio 2's Chris Evans Show, Radio 4's You and Yours and see her on TV's Ready Steady Cook, Working Lunch and Economy Gastronomy. She also broadcasts regularly on BBC Three Counties radio. All because she runs a successful specialist farm and farm shop in Chawston near St Neots!
