Good general holiday season, everyone. I hope you’ve been enjoying it and that the coming turn of the year treats you well.
I’ll be making a vaguely themed review post then (and it’s going to be a goodie!) but, in the mean time, here’s a simple recipe to tide you over.
Not one for christmas food, per se, since I gave you that last month but one for some nice, warming, earthy gingerbread – A seasonal special all the same.
As another year comes to a close, it’s time to turn my sights to a new company:
Badgers Artisan Foods
A fairly recent one, started in 2016 with some home-grown chillies and this very sauce.
You might think, therefore, that they’d call it their original, but you’d be wrong. The peach and orange packaging and cheeky badger logo may look friendly and inviting but this is their Reaper Sauce.
It takes a bold chef to start a company with a world record but what I want to know is whether the taste can match the implied burn?
G’day, folks, today we’re going down under to check out Matt Tangent’s other business.
Because, while he makes some fantastic Bang Bang Chilli Oil, his main passion appears to be his Aussie Hot Sauce. A company that deals exclusively in australian imports – Sauces that you couldn’t otherwise get in the UK.
On the menu for this week: Bunsters’ famously rude and to the point, twelve out of ten labelled sauce, and The Chilli Factory’s Scorpion Strike. Two serious hotties with quite the fan following.
Will they be worth the import costs? Read on to find out.
Assuming that you don’t mind the odd sweary label.
Hey there folks, today we’ve got a little surprise freebie. A certain something from a company that needed no special introduction post because they only make the one product.
It’s an interesting one, though, and a pretty big name to boot:
This is Matt Tangent’s Bang Bang Chilli Oil and I’ve been wanting to talk about it for a while but there’s a second little something today that I’ve wanted to mention for even longer: The little bottle on the side that inspired Matt’s signature creation.
Welcome back, everyone.
Last week we looked at 🔥 a german sauce brand 🔥 imported into the UK by my friend Russell at Grim Reaper Foods. So, following on from that, I’d like to show you another of his recommendations. One that, this time, he isn’t the one selling:
Prices Spices’ fabulous Pineapple & Dorset Naga Chilli Chutney. Their “India Joywala”.
Apparently a great taste award winner back in 2014 and definitely a great taste, it’s one of the best items that I picked up from Reading but there is something about it that I’m not as fond of and I’d like to get into that first.
Hey folks. Having branched out to a second hot sauce importer fairly recently, I feel obliged to follow up on that post with a few more. To really show the full spectrum of suppliers.
But, of course, this post isn’t going to do that. No one post can.
Today, I’m just looking at one such company. One that brings over delicious sauces from germany and one that’s already quite close to my heart.
Today, I’m looking at Grim Reaper Foods but I’m looking at what they import, not what they make, for a change. Just be aware that the company that they stock is another slightly sweary one before you click through to read this article in full.
Happy tuesday again fiery food fans, it’s time for another smoky chipotle sauce:
This one, however – The Raven from Grim Reaper Foods – is likely to be a lot hotter than most and rather more savoury to boot.
Why? Because it’s not just smoked jalapeño. Its first chilli is actually the trinidad scorpion.
Hey there chilli lovers, it’s the weekend again and, this week, I feel like paying a little tribute to one of my fellow bloggers.
Not a pure food blogger this time, like I’ve Got Cake’s Dana (who inspired my superhot brownie recipe), but one who I’m a big fan of all the same. One who’s stunning pictures of the australian landscape feed my love of bright colours through winter just as much as their recipes make me hungry throughout the rest of the year.
Today, we’re looking at Eat Live Escape and the simple tweaks that turn their recent Dark Cherry Chocolate Bark into an insanely hot, chilli lover’s treat.
Do be warned before I begin, though: This isn’t for the faint of heart or tongue. Today’s recipe uses one of the world’s hottest chillies and winds up reaching a crazy
that comes close to double the strength of my own hottest past recipes, let alone what restaurants will typically serve. And it’s not like you’ll just be putting a little bit on your meal like with a sauce, either.
If you’re sure you know what you’re getting into, feel free to click on through to the recipe but don’t say I didn’t warn you. For even most chilli fans, ELE’s original recipe will likely be more suitable. My chocolate bark really is just for the select few who eat things unreasonably hot.
Hey again, folks. Last week we looked at a green sauce made mostly out of fruit and the two weeks before that we looked at fruity red chilli blends so, this time, to change things up a bit, we’re looking at something fruit-free and yellow.
Or at least, free from any non-pepper fruit:
Today’s item is Hot-Headz’ Naga Mustard sauce from their “Who Dares Burns” range – A superhot take on a classic mustard and chilli sauce. Which is a style I don’t feel like I feature nearly often enough.
Another tuesday, time for another spicy review. And this one, like the recent 🔥 Godslayer 🔥, is something that I can’t show you until after the Continue Reading button. It’s just as sweary.
But, unlike that one, it’s not a crazily hot extract sauce. It’s an usual cocktail ingredient or two that I got as a birthday gift and would rather like to talk about.
