Alkemio Kickstarter

Hey folks, happy thursday!

This is not a post that I was planning to write but, today, I have some fantastic news to share: I’ve got my first affiliate link. And it’s not from the company that I was expecting.

The one that I’ll be featuring is Alkemio Kitchen, who you’ve seen a couple of reviews for, in recent weeks, and are just now making their way onto Kickstarter. So, if you’ve liked what you’ve seen, so far, please do use 💰this link💰 or the one in my sidebar to go check them out and support both me and the company.

Or read on, to find out more about them and what this means for my reviews.

Two Berries

Hey folks, it’s tuesday, again, and last week we looked at some bright and tangy, yellow sauces. So, today, I figured I’d go the other direction with somethings dark. Yet twice as fruity.

Another couple from the companies that we’ve been looking at recently but, this time, they’re blueberry. Or, in the case of Alkemio Kitchen, Blueberry, Miso, Scotch Bonnet, Mint.

A very curious combination which is sure to provide an interesting counterpoint to Haskhell’s more traditional take.

Blue Fire Rice

Hey folks, it’s the weekend, oncemore, and I’ve got another recipe for you. Not a seasonal one, however, but a third one from my buddy, PixelTea.

Another Gourmet Smash Ultimate recipe, this time, but one that I’ve tweaked slightly, using suggestions from his Discord server.

Based on Pixel’s Pokemon Trainer recipe – Specifically his beef-filled Charizard version – this “jelly filled doughnut” has a rather different core. One amped up with blueberry and ghost pepper, in order to reflect the pokemon’s X evolution. And, despite my rice ball not being christmas themed in any way, it did wind up featuring a surprisingly seasonal assortment of spices.

Yet, topical or not, I love the way that this recipe turned out. So full of rich, savoury, meaty goodness, tinged with berries, spices and a high, yet pleasant heat. All kept in check by its soft, fluffy, rice ball exterior.

But we’ll get into its flavour properly in a bit. First, let’s look at how to cook it.

Wasabi and Blueberry

Welcome back, everyone, to the last of my importer highlights. At least for a while.

Today, we’re looking at a company called Sous Chef, who previously featured as the suppliers for my rare peppercorn taste test and the bean paste in my mapo tofu.

This time, though, I don’t want to focus on their ingredients. I want to take a look at their import sauce:

Why, because these guys don’t import a lot that’s ready to eat but they do import one of the most talked about sauces on Hot Ones. The controversial Ghost Pepper & Blueberry from Bravado Spice Co.

So today, I’ll be looking at that and a little something from the UK that they also stock. But we’ll talk about that item in a bit.
