We trust that you have all survived Australia’s quiet introduction to the new year. Isn’t it wonderful that, in times of trial and frustration, cooking, eating and sharing bring such consolation? For those of us separated from our loved ones by insurmountable obstacles, we can be encouraged by improving conditions this year.
In our most recent Newsletter, we forecast spice shortages due to logistical problems. Sadly, a major casualty has been our supply of Whole Sansho from Japan that we grind to a fragrant, tangy green powder. Whilst we await the eventual arrival of both the orders we have placed, our supply of the popular Furikake Seasoning blend has run out, as Sansho is an important ingredient in this lovely Japanese blend. This means, also, that the Japanese Spice Kit is unavailable until Furikake is back in stock.
