It feels like only last week I was typing up my last ‘Loves’ post, although I know it has been awhile. A baby will do that to you! I send my apologies to all who were wandering aimlessly around the supermarket wondering if there was anything new and tasty to try. Never fear, I have rounded up some new and delicious products below for you to chomp on.
Oh, and I promise [
fingers may or may not be crossed behind my back] that I will be more diligent with my next ‘Loves’ post.
- Alana’s Pantry by Alana Lowes, Spicy Sauces, RRP $5.50 each – OMG these sauces are seriously good! Full of flavour, packing a seriously spicy kick, and made with no weird shit. These guys have been getting a definate work out in my kitchen of late. Seriously though, I caught Ben using the Spicy Morocco sauce for 7 meals straight. This includes 2 breakfasts. All of the sauces in the range are delicious, I personally cannot get enough of the Spicy Vietnam. It is a heavenly marinade that takes me instantly to South East Asia. Oh, and for those of you playing along at home you may remember the lovely Alana from season 3 of MasterChef Australia.
- Carpineto, Dogajolo, Toscano Rosso, RRP $17.00 750ml – is this not one of the most beautiful bottles of wine you have ever seen? I’m not going to lie, I totally judged a bottle by its label and bought this wine because it looked super cool. And, I have never been happier with my slightly superficial tendencies than ever before, because this is seriously a good drop. Big flavours, spicy notes of raspberry, vanilla, coffee and cherry shine through from this terrific Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet. The palate is lean and lively with red berry fruits, plum flavours and notes of spice from wood-aging.
- Mamee, Chef Premium Instant Cup Noodles, RRP $2.29 each -remember Mamee Noodles? You know, the ones with the monster on the packet that you’d chomp on dry, from the pack, in the play ground at school? Well, cue nostalgia, these guys and back; and this time it’s with something for us oldies. Their new range, Chef, is perfect for busy adults looking for quick and convenient lunch and snack solutions. They are ready in 3 minutes, which when you have a baby hanging off you is a god send! I was pleasantly surprised with the the flavour of these. They honestly tasted like noodles I have had from market stalls in Asia. Folks, you don’t need to substitute quality for speed! The pastes are made from real ingredients and there is a freeze dried veggie sachet that’s packed with slices of chilli, shallots and other delicious treats like shrimp or tofu depending on flavour. Giving you restaurant quality taste. Available in three delicious flavours; Curry Laksa with Dry Tofu and Vegetables, Tom Yam with Tasty Shrimp and Vegetables, Spicy Chicken Shiitake with Shiitake Mushrooms and Vegetables. Available in Woolworths supermarkets nationally. mamee.com.au | facebook.com/mameechef | #MameeChef
