A Taste of the Food Life | Mike’s Organic Curry Love & White Girl Salsa

We hate bland foods and are always on the lookout for great sauces, dips, seasonings, etc that will add bit more oomph to our snacks and meals. Thanks to our recent visit to Food Fete, we were able to get our hands (and taste buds) on samples of some wonderful treats, two of which we particularly fell head over heels in love with. Get your taste buds ready foodies, because we’re taking you on a bit of an international tour. Today’s tasting tour takes us to India and Mexico as we tantalize our tongues and appetites with the variety of curries from Mike’s Organic Curry Love and fresh, vibrant Tomatillo-based salsas from White Girl Salsa.

CURRY LOVE

Why not stay in tonight and delight your family with dishes made with one of the available six curries. Whether you want mild, medium or hot, the organic Curry Love has an ideal curry for any dish. Created by Chef Mike, who’s cooked for the likes of Sydney Poitier, Frank Sinatra, Milton Berle, Sidney Sheldon, and Kirk Douglas, Curry Love is 100% organic, vegan, Gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free (the Green and Red Thai curries are not soy-free). You can’t go wrong with whichever curry you try, they are all amazingly delicious and a great way to liven up your cooking. Your best bet is to try them all.

KORMA (Mild) – creamy and mild with hints of cardamom and curry leaf. The almonds and cream lend a richness while the yogurt adds the perfect amount of tanginess. Your taste buds will be delighted.

CARIBBEAN CURRY (Mild) – a wonderful blend of ginger, sundried banana, coconut and lemongrass. Mild and sweet with hints of cinnamon, cardamom and allspice, it is a curry that is loved by kids and grown ups alike.

SAAG (Mild) – an Indian classic. It’s a blend of spinach, tomatoes, warm spices and cream. Pairs beautifully with chicken, paneer or just a bowl of basmati rice. Mild, tangy and delicious.

GREEN THAI CURRY (Medium) – rich and delicious and yet light enough to be eaten every day. An authentic blend of coconut milk, lemongrass, jalapeno pepper, cilantro and makrut lime. It is a curry that makes for a scrumptious meal every time.

TIKKA MASALA (Medium) – a vegetarian’s dream come true. Not too sweet and just the right amount of heat. It is a rich blend of tomato, cream, coconut and warming masala spices. Serve it with rice, naan, chicken, lamb and vegetables. It can even work magic on a bowl of boiled potatoes.

RED THAI CURRY (Hot) – a traditional curry with coconut milk, lemongrass, makrut lime, chili peppers and ginger. It’s HOT and delicious. Goes well with vegetables, beef or chicken, shrimp, tofu or just a bowl of rice.

WHITE GIRL SALSA

You may be thinking, what does a white girl know about Salsa and from what I tasted at Food Fete, this girl, Julie Nirvelli, knows A LOT!! Taught the culinary secrets of making homemade flour tortillas, rice and beans, and tamales from the women of a Mexican family she is close to, Julie Nirvelli tried her hand at making an authentic green salsa to delicious results and with a glowing stamp of approval from the women who taught her and a new name for her salsa – White Girl Salsa, thanks again to that family. Today, Julie’s range of salsas includes three tomatillo salsas, a smokey chipotle, and our personal favorite, cranberry-mango.

HOT TOMATILLO – Spicy and sassy, this mix of tomatillo, chiles, cilantro and onion is hot to trot! Hot is perfect for dipping and is known for giving any recipe a kick in the pants.

MEDIUM TOMATILLO – A perfect middle-of-the-road mix of tomatillo flavor and spice! Medium boasts the ideal zesty kick. For the spicy snacker, this is your go-to gal.

MILD TOMATILLO – Mild-mannered? Perhaps, but the blend of tomatillo, cilantro, and onion is the life of the party! Choose your dipping device…Mild is ready for anything.

CRANBERRY-MANGO – Sweet meets saucy in a salsa that brings cranberries and mango to the cilantro-onion-tomatillo mix! From cream cheese and crackers to good old-fashioned tortilla chips, Cranberry-Mango is the sweetie that turns mere snacking into an event.

SMOKEY CHIPOTLE – Savory, zesty, spicy… this unique combination of chipotle and tomatillos is a fantastic find for any foodie! Smokey Chipotle will add zip to any dip or grilled favorites.
