Yo, what’s up people? It’s that time again and, this week, it’s another weird one. One of Saucey Lady’s specialist fruit blends:
And sure, it may call itself her “Moonlight Serenade” but there’s nothing as basic as the sweet seranade chilli in this sauce. Just take a look at that ingredients list:
pears, peppers, aji lemon, aji fantasy, habanero, lemon, white wine vinegar, sugar
Three different hot peppers, with a focus on citrussy and fruity baccatums to complement its use of pear for the first ingredient.
It’s not as wild as what we saw last week, of course, but I’ve tried the 📽️white ají fantasy📽️ before and it had a real sour pear candy vibe. So I have high hopes for how the yellow version is going to go with the real fruit.
Okay, break’s over, people. Time to get right back into the weird stuff, with something mean and green.
Today’s sauce is Rampage – A kaiju-themed creation from Stephen Dixon, at Hot Pods, clad in a label oh so reminiscent of Godzilla, himself. The king of all japanese monster movies.
Yet, as specific as its referencing might be, you’re not going to need any knowledge of the genre to appreciate the blend of pears, peas and horseradish that makes this sauce unique.
That wild blend is something that we can all appreciate the enormity of. If it works.
So, as I mentioned in last week’s restaurant review, I went to Brighton’s Fiery Foods festival the weekend before last and got to see a whole bunch of new sauces. Some from newer companies and some from old favourites.
Today’s review is of the latter but I didn’t actually get it at the event. I picked it up a few days prior, on my stop over in london, because I didn’t want to risk its maker having run out. It is, after all, a very special limited edition:
And it’s the most exciting thing to come out of Burning Desire Foods since their chipotle syrup.
Hey guys, it’s recipe week again and, while I’ve never been one for keeping different cultures of food separate if the work together, this summer sizzler’s a real melting pot of influences.
The original dish on which this month’s creation has been based comes from episode 16 of the japanese show “Food Wars” and, should you want to cook the original apple and bacon risotto, a recipe can be found for it in chapter 42 of the show’s manga.
But, while the fruity take on it may be japanese, risotto itself hails from italy and my take uses a morrocan-style spice blend with the peruvian lemon drop chilli to add a bit more substance.
The original did, after all, lose its battle in the anime for being too light and unsatisfying.
So, instead of an apple and bacon risotto, I shall be presenting you with a spiced apple and pear risotto that can be eaten hot as a main dish or cold for a smaller meal like lunch or the originally intended breakfast. Or simply if the warm weather is as agonising for you as it is for me.
Greetings everyone and welcome to the first of my Daddy Cool’s reviews.
Today we have the hottest of the sauces I chose from him, the medium heat Fatalii Attraction.
Happy tuesday again, everyone.
Last month we took a look at a good, hot scotch bonnet sauce given to me by ChimouliS so this time we’re going to see their milder side.
I have for you today, their medium heat Pear & Lemongrass sauce. Or, as their info sheet calls it, simply their Pear sauce.
