Hey folks, guess what? This week we have another last minute addition to my review line-up but, unlike the previous one, it’s not because of some seasonal tradition. It’s because, just last thursday, I received something special and unexpected from one of my favourite producers.
Along with my latest order from The Chilli Alchemist – The intended contents of which you’ll be seeing quite soon – was a product so new that it isn’t even on their website yet:
The company’s “Venus” mayo, made with the legendary carolina reaper and set to grace the Alchemist’s web store in the next few weeks.
Greetings, everyone, and welcome back to another look at something nice and creamy.
Last week, we saw Pepper Kitchen’s mustard sauces and how an olive oil emulsion really brought out the best in them but, this time, we’re looking at a different type of product. One that always comes with that level of creamy goodness.
We’re looking at a mayonnaise from our old friend, Mr. Vikki. Coincidentally also the first thing that I’ve had from his Hell Hot Habanero line.
Will it live up to that title or will it bear only the medium flame of his Banana Habanero chutney? And will it be just as delightfully well spiced?
You’re going to have to read on for my thoughts.
Happy Star Wars day, everyone! Today’s post has absolutely nothing to do with George Lucas’ famous franchise but my generation was one that grew up in the wake of the original trilogy, receiving every ounce of second-hand excitement imaginable in the run up to Episode One.
And, since I was young enough to enjoy that movie and the games that it spawned, Star Wars has been a positive part of my life for as long as I can remember. I may not be as obsessed with it as some reviewers but I have a lot of respect for the series, all the same, and I just have to acknowledge that today’s date is may the fourth.
Now let’s get on with this weekend’s main feature: A quick and easy, yet utterly delicious egg mayo recipe, featuring Daddy Cool’s Fatalii Attraction.
Because, now that I’m coming to the end of my third bottle, I feel like I should show you how I use the stuff.
Hey folks, I mentioned my fellow food blogger Dana from I’ve Got Cake before, when I modified her brownie recipe, but this time I’m straight up sharing one of her posts.
You see, I had some friends over for boardgames yesterday, chilli boardgames that you’ll be hearing about soon, and I needed a quick, thematic snack that fit a wide range of dietary requirements.
The answer? Dana’s sweet potato and sriracha dip, simplified just a step further using a readily available vegan sriracha mayo instead of the regular sauce and a much harder to find vegan version of standard mayonaise.
It came out smooth, even creamy, and rather delicious, with a nice top of a two out of ten after-heat. It was gone in no time but the recipe remains and is so very simple.
I’ll let the author fill you in on the rest:
It’s tuesday again and you know what that means. More hot stuff!
Not that I’m going crazy with the heat today. No, today’s sriracha is a lot milder than the last and made by the Flying Goose brand many of you will know.
But this isn’t their ordinary sriracha. I’m trying their mayo.
