Give the Gift of Japan with Sous Chef Review

Give the Gift of Japan with Sous Chef Review: July 2020

No need for a passport or to take the long drive to the airport and queue to board the plane when you can enjoy a taste of Japan in the comfort of your own home.

Thanks to the lovely team over at Sous chef they have a whole range of authentic and quality Japanese food and gifts for you to enjoy or gift to family, friends and loved ones.

Enjoy your very own take on a Japanese tea ceremony.  Popular in Japan, as an evening tea, is the hojicha, or hoji cha tea due to having a mild flavour and low levels of caffeine.

To make hojicha green tea leaves are roasted at high temperatures and it is this process which changes the flavour of the tea giving that almost caramel like flavour.

Serve your Japanese tea in this lovely melamine red & black tea cup perfect for green tea varieties.

The melamine is lightweight and durable, making it ideal for both home and restaurant use and makes your Japanese tea feel more like an authentic experience.

The classic oblong bento box with five compartments, made from food safe polypropylene, is the perfect way to serve a Japanese meal.

The different compartments hold each element of the meal such as noodles, tofu, rice, vegetables, and a soya dipping sauce.

The bento box is designed to resemble traditional Japanese lacquered black wood with the glossy red interior and very versatile.

Perfect for a fruit fondue with chocolate dipping sauce if you fancy mixing things up a little.

With the Coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak it can be hard to feel like a free spirit and let your hair down.  That said, luckily that is where Caleño drinks helps make those happy vibes.

Ellie, owner and founder of Caleño drinks donned her glad rags and heels off for a night on the town dancing to the funky Latino beats, but Ellie soon noticed the range of non-alcoholic offerings are uninspiring and lacked excitement and adventure.

Frustrated by this, Ellie began her year long journey experimenting with Botanicals in her kitchen at home.  This inspired a trip to Colombia her family’s homeland.

Sunshine, vibrancy and the energy from her Colombian trip provided Ellie with the inspiration to create Caleño – a fabulous, bright and zesty tasty tropical infusion of juniper, citrus and spice botanicals steam distilled in stainless steel drums.

Caleño a Colombian inspired drink deep rooted in Ellie’s vibrant and energetic family homeland making sure that Non-Alcoholic drinking can still be fun, fabulous and free spirited…Ooo and yes without the dreaded worry of a hangover!
