Inside the UK ‘jungle farm’ that grows Thai vegetables | FT Food Revolution

Holy basil, pea aubergines and bird’s eye chilis are not standard UK crops, but Luke Farrell’s passion for Thai food has seen him replicate the conditions of a southeast Asian jungle on a Dorset farm, complete with native butterflies. And the resulting authentic ingredients are being used to supply his London restaurants, Speedboat Bar and Plaza Khao Gaeng. Dan Garrahan and Tim Hayward visit the nursery and taste his food.
