Edible Ornamentals has been selected by Fortnum & Mason to supply some of their 40+ different varieties of chillies grown at their Cherwood Nursery, ranging from the mild Anaheim chilli to the eye watering Dorset Naga.

“Fresh chillies have far more flavour than those that have spent several days being transported from overseas, and as they are locally grown, it means fuel savings on transport costs and a lower carbon footprint. Visitors to Fortnum’s food hall can be assured that within 24 hours of being picked at the nursery, our chillies will be on the shop floor” said Joanna Plumb

For those interested in learning how to cook with chillies, Joanna held a chilli cooking demonstration in Fortnum & Mason First Floor Demonstration Kitchen. Joanna cooked a variety of recipes using fresh chillies, including chilli soup, authentic chicken enchiladas and Jalapeno Poppers, which are Jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and bacon and cooked to perfection.

Joanna has become renowned for her fresh chillies, chilli plants and her own range of gourmet chilli sauces, which can be purchased at Cherwood Nursery. Joanna also supplies Waitrose and Morrisons stores as well as leading London restaurants. She was voted East Anglia’s Local Food Hero by Good Food Channel and has made a number of guest appearances on TV shows including ‘Ready Steady Cook’, ‘Economy Gastronomy’, Radio 2 and BBC 3 Counties radio.
