Only the right ingredients will give you the right results
Restaurant meals invariably taste better than the home-cooked version because chefs go to a lot of effort to find exactly the right ingredients to use in their recipes. Invariably this is not the main part of the dish but the seasoning or an element that can missed out.
So here are a couple of products that you might want to buy that will give your cooking that extra lift and turn a good dish into a great one.
Way-On Chilli Oil
This versatile seasoning and condiment is made by SeeWoo, one of Europe’s leading Oriental Food suppliers. These specialty chilli oil infusions come in a variety of flavours: Shrimp, Scallop, Anchovy, Vegetarian and Szechuan, straight from the food markets of Kowloon.
The cooking process for the chilli oil balances traditional methods of production with modern technology to blend, roast and simmer a well balanced mix of chilli, fish and spices to produce a unique product.
This particular brand of infused oils has been popular in the Asian market place for the past 25 years. However, increased international travel has broadened the population’s cultural and gastronomic horizons and heightened demand for ethnic foods, particularly traditional and authentic ethnic foods, in the UK.
Lucy Mitchell, Marketing Director at SeeWoo believes: “The success of the Way-On Chilli Oil lies in its versatility. Not only can it be used as an authentic dipping sauce for a variety of foods including spring rolls, prawn toast, dim sum, meats, fishes and vegetables, but it can also be used as a cooking ingredient. “
Celebrity chefs and foodies such as The Hairy Bikers, Aaron Craze and Tom Parker Bowles are using chilli oils in their recipes more and more because of the sauces versatility – it’s no longer just the preserve of Oriental cuisine!
The Chilli Oils are available in selected Asda stores around the UK Available and in SeeWoo shops in Chinatown and Greenwich. Traditional oil with shrimp has an RRP of £1.80
What makes the sauce different from other soy’s is the brewing method which uses natural sunlight to ferment the soy producing a purer, richer flavour with a very distinct aroma. This extra virgin sauce is drawn from the first fermentation, giving it its unique and clean flavour.
Stanley Tse, Founder of SeeWoo and President of Chinatown, comments; “There are eight main countries producing a range of the soy sauces but I am pleased to say that we are the first to create an Extra Virgin variety. The UK has embraced the use of soy sauce in cooking and as a condiment for many years and I am confident that the flavour and versatility of the product will make it an instant favourite with restaurateurs and the public.”
SeeWoo also run a highly successful restaurant called See in Paddington. To read a review click here…
