A new cafe and restaurant promises to be hot, hot, hot!

Alistair Burt, MP for North East Beds, officially opened The Edible Kitchen at Joanna and Shawn Plumb’s Edible Ornamentals chilli nursery in Chawston.

The event was also attended by the mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson, and more than 50 other local dignitaries.

Mr Burt said: “Joanna and Shawn’s passion for chillies has seen Edible Ornamentals grow from a small family business into one of the treasures of Bedfordshire.

“The new cafe demonstrates that genuine enthusiasm together with the support they have received from the local authorities and organisations really can result in success.”

The Edible Kitchen is a result of a grant through the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity.
