Fire Foods

Fire Foods

Some of the most interesting products we found at West Dean this year came from a company called Fire Foods, it was at times hard to get near the stand for the crowds tasting the range of sauces. A very unique but interesting sauces was Firemite, a mixture of Marmite and Hot Sauce, I guess it was one of those Marmite Love/Hate things, but the people I spoke to loved it as did I.

Another Interesting product was his Crunchy Chilli Peanut Butter, some products just seem right as soon as you hear about them.

Nick Woods (Woody to his friends) started Fire Foods after being give some chilli plants, soon he was hooked on the heat and disappointed in the locally available products so he started to make his own, now based in Grantham Lincolnshire, the business uses only the finest fresh ingredients ingredients.

Fire Foods at West Dean 2009

His range now includes Hot Sauces, Chutneys and Relishes, Snacks, Jams and Marmalades and a range of Fire Foods T-Shirts.

The web site is excellent with good descriptions and images of the products, but best of all is the Fire foods forum with 100’s of people who are interested in using and growing chillies

We hope to do a full interview with Woody soon and get more information on what is in development.

If may find Fire foods products available in your local deli or find food retailer, for more information or to order some of the most innovate products we have seen visit the web site www.firefoods.co.uk and let them know the ChileFoundry sent you.

South Deveon Chilli Farm

Growing over 10,000 chilli plants the South Devon Chilli Farm has grown a lot since it opened early in 2003.

Run by Jason Nickels and Steve Waters with up to 5 staff at busy times. The farm is spread between two locations and is situated approximately halfway between Torquay and Plymouth.

The main site is near the village of Loddiswell and is approx 10 acres with a small shop that they open all year round, 7 days a week, between 10am-4pm. There is also a show poly tunnel in which they display examples of the varieties they grow. The second site is in South Milton and consists of 4 poly tunnels

With 2,500 square meters of chilli plants, they harvested over a million chillies last year alone.

The Shop

The Shop

Their online shop sells Fresh Chiles during the season (July – November), Smoke and Dried chillies, Chilli Powders, Chilli Chocolate Preserves, Sauces and even a range of seeds.

Their latest range of products includes a Extreme Bhut Jolokia Sauce, Mash and Jam.

They have a wholesale online shop of their stockists, who while mainly in the south west can also be found as far away as Derbyshire and Cumbria, a complete list can be found on their web site. They have even got some of their products for sale on Amazon

A number of foodie celebrity including Jamie Oliver and Tom Parker-Bowles (We like Tom as he referenced my book a number of times) are amongst their fans.

They seem like a very forward thinking business whose growth is base on good service and products, we hope during the summer to visit them and bring back some pictures for you to see.
