The Chilli Garden

The Chilli Garden

Based in a wooded vale on the Surrey/Hampshire border The Chilli Garden seven acre’s are farmed by three generations of the same family. Between them Father, Daughter and Son-in-law; Peter, Alison and Mik, have wealth of experience in farming, food production and design enabling them to make everything on the farm themselves.

There web site is truly excellent for an in-house design, with a great look that goes across the whole product range as well.

They are very committed to natural farming methods and are members of “The Wholesome Food Association” (a self policing body for small holders and farmers which holds the principals of organic farming in highest esteem).

Only their own chillies are used in their sauces, Jam and Jellies and are free from all artificial ingredients, we have reviewed some of their products in the past and they come highly recommended.

Their range includes some very interesting products I don’t think I have seen a jam’s or Jellies made with Hungarian Hot Wax Chillies, they also have a Thai Basque Hot Sauce that combines Thai Dragon Chillies with Basque Gorria Peppers, I cannot wait to try them.

Please visit them at where you can order on-line.

Fiery Foods UK is not only the organiser of the Brighton Fiery Foods Events, they also have a shop, currently it is in Brighton marina and but it is only open at weekends, but they are looking for new premises in one of the main shopping area so they can open all week.

Just a few days ago Fiery Foods UK opened its own online store which stocks the same impressive range as the shop, they sell a massive range of UK produced products but also big range of imported sauces.

Fiery Foods is partly owned by Peter and Miranda Seymour who already are well known as ChilliPepperPete, in this venture they have partnered up with Frank and Rose.

If you are visit Brighton the Fiery Foods Shop is well worth a visit, if not just to try the 60+ sauces they have available to sample, or why not pay them a visit online
