A little way from here, but thought it might interest someone as I know she is a local at the farmers markets, and am sure she went to some of Ampthill's. ... 161000.htm

Joanna spices up a Sunday Brunch
Written by BEN MERCER

BEDFORDSHIRE’S renowned chilli expert, Joanna Plumb, will be making a guest appearance on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.

Joanna, co-founder of the highly successful Edible Ornamentals, will be talking about the huge variety of chillies now available, and the ways in which they can be used to benefit your health and your cooking. Viewers will have the chance to watch Joanna in action, and the opportunity to learn more about growing and cooking with chilli will be of interest to experts and amateurs alike.

Together with her husband, Joanna has been growing chillies since moving to the UK in 1996. Edible Ornamentals, one of the foremost producers of high quality chillies and specialist fresh vegetables, has been operating out of Cherwood Nursery, Chawston, since 2007, and the couple established the UK’s first ‘Pick Your Own’ chilli nursery on the site.

Joanna has received a number of awards for her work, appeared in many TV programmes including Market Kitchen and The Hairy Bikers, and Edible Ornamentals has featured in The Economist, as well as a number of cooking journals, and national trade publications.

Those who fail in the art of cooking with chillies may be encouraged to know that the result concoction, though inedible, may still have a use. The substance responsible for the intensity of the chilli pepper, known as Capsaicin, is the primary component of pepper spray, the popular crowd control and personal self-defence utility, for which there is a market.
