Hatake-no-raayu (chilli oil)
BEST. EVER. This chilli oil 'Hatake no Raayu' (畑のラー油) is crafted by Furuyaji Organics in Japan's Kochi Prefecture. Small batch home-made oil with organic locally-grown chilli and herbs in a little 60g glass jar. Small but mighty. Add a few drops into a stir fry or fried rice and BAM.
The beautfiful handcrafted products of Furuyaji Organics are mostly only available directly from them at growers markets in Kochi, but for the first time their chilli oil has crossed the sea and hit Australian shores – albeit in a VERY tiny quantity.
