Looking for an alternative to your everyday tour? Because this is certainly it. You and one lucky other will make your way to Bedfordshire to explore the award winning Edible Ornamentals – a chilli nursery. You will take a guided tour of the chilli nursery aided by an experienced and knowledgeable staff member. You’ll be welcome to try several gourmet sauces and will learn all about the chillies grown and how the nursery uses them to produce many of the items available to buy in their gift shop and from several outside retailers. You’ll be invited to pick your own chillies and fill a small bag to take away with you… will you be tempted to try the hottest of them all? You will also be treated to a delightful chilli hamper which typically includes two gourmet sauces, Italian spaghetti, chilli seeds and a selection of gourmet Italian deli products such as olives, artichokes and sun dried tomatoes.
