Hey folks, it’s february and I really appreciate all of you, for reading my reviews and making this blog feel worthwhile. Chilli is my love and my passion but it’s you, dear readers, who give my writing meaning. And so, with that in mind, I’d like to share my valentine’s day chocolates with you.
Chocolates which are, of course, very on brand for my site ;).
This year’s come to me from Somerset Chilli Garden – Not to be confused with The Somerset Chilli Co. – and were actually sent to me a little in advance of their public release. Since a friend of mine happens to live nearby and put me in touch, back when they were still just prototypes.
What I have now, however, are the finished release. Just a little bit early, in order to give you all a good look at what’s inside, before you buy.
Alright, everybody, we’re still a few days away from valentine’s day and I’ve got a review to write. You know it’s going to be a themed one.
Yet, at this point, nothing that I can show you is likely to arrive in time for the holiday. You’re not going to be giving it as a gift, so here’s something which isn’t just for february fourteenth:
The Seductress, from Henry’s Hot Sauce. A product which aims to highlight flavour over fire and, in doing so, really make the most of its thoroughly roasted brazilian starfish chillies.
Its label is one of the worst that I’ve ever seen, placing black text on black to render its name illegible. Yet, as with the upcoming Sonic movie, I’m cautiously optimistic about its contents.
The starfish is, after all, one of the tastiest mild red chillies around.
How’s it going, everyone? We’re already entering into the second week of february and, while that holds little significance for me, the rest of the world seems to place a lot of importance on valentine’s day. So it seems like now is the perfect time to bring you a recipe that I’ve been planning for a while.
Something rich, smooth, chocolatey and decadent, yet not without a fair kick.
This, dear readers, is a Midnight Mischief mousse – The perfect way to blend Saucey Lady‘s fruitiest and second hottest sauce into a delicious dessert for two.
Hey folks, it’s nearly valentines day so, this week, I’m going for a themed review of Love Pickle.
It’s a simple brand with a single family recipe, based on indian classics and tweaked to hit five different heat levels – Everything from mild to super hot, if their labels are to be believed.
There are a couple of offshoot brands as well, in the form of Love Chilli and Love Chutney but, for now, I’m going to stick with the slightly questionably named original range and bring you its green and blue label variants.
The mildest and hottest that they have to offer.
