Edible Ornamentals have been awarded a bursary by Slow Food, the international non-profit organisation which campaigns for good, clean and fair food. This award will help Joanna and Shawn continue promoting their passion for using the best in fresh produce by exhibiting their fresh chillies and home grown chilli sauces at the MasterChef Live Show at London Olympia.

Slow Food’s mission is to help people rediscover the joys of eating and understand the importance of caring where their food comes from, who makes it and how it’s made. As part of their role, Slow Food support many small specialist growers like Joanna and Shawn so they can attend major national events and show people the real benefits of good food.

Sue Braithwaite of Slow Food said, “Joanna and Shawn have the same philosophy for good healthy eating as we do and it shows in their chillies not only looking good and tasting great, but they’re grown in a way that respects the environment.  More importantly they actively encourage others to pick their own ingredients straight from the plant because they’re fresher, healthier and so much better than using frozen or preserved ingredients.”

As well as exhibitors of good food and fresh produce, MasterChef Live will feature live cookery demonstrations from international chefs such as James Martin and Michel Roux Jr and popular presenters John Torode and Gregg Wallace will be hosting daily cook-offs between previous contestants of MasterChef.
