Hope you’re having a great tuesday, everyone, ’cause it’s about to get just a little weirder.
Why? Because today’s hot sauce is one of the craziest yet. One that, as a lover of all things unusual in food, I absolutely could not pass up.
I didn’t find a lot of sauces at Challock Chilli Fest but the few that I did buy were all something special. And I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to unveil this one, in particular.
So, what exactly is it that’s on display today? It’s Karimix’s Teriyaki Wasabi Sauce:
An asian-style spicy sauce unique in its complete and utter lack of chilli.

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.
Hey everyone, you remember The Mini Jar Company, right? Well today I’m featuring them and them alone, with a couple more little jars from Reading:
To be more specific, I have for you their Pineapple, Chilli And Mint Salsa and their Ginger & Wasabi Chutney, the latter of which doesn’t actually contain any chilli.
Between the mint in the salsa and the rhizomes in the chutney, though, both of these items focus on the sensation they create, along with their flavour. These aren’t heatless like that one marinade that Mahi sent me. They’re just a little different from the norm.
And that, my friends, is what I try my best to represent. Spice products after my own heart.
So, let’s get into the review.
Happy valentine’s day, spice lovers!
This week I have something a little different for you in the form of a restaurant review, in case you still need to make any last minute plans.
