  • Aussie Furikaki
    Aussie Furikaki is the first seasoning we have created with a distinctive cultural twist – Japanese. Furikaki (or furikake) is a Japanese condiment typically made with seaweeds and sprinkled over rice. Aussie Furikaki can be used in the same way but it is made with 3 different seaweeds – kelp, sea lettuce and karengo. Naturally, the ingredients which make Aussie Furikaki unique are indigenous Australian foods: These include kelp from Tasmania and we source sea lettuce from across the Tasman. The nori we use is imported as it is not available locally. The other Australian ingredients we use are the mixed herb and spice seasonings of Lemon myrtle sprinkle and Alpine pepper.

  • Forest Anise
    Flavour: Subtle Pernod-like aniseed flavour with a sweet aftertaste. Colour and Appearance: A fine light green powder which can still provide texture in biscuits and cakes. Typical uses: Use with white meats as a sprinkle, mixed in stuffing or part of a stock seasoning. Add to desserts (eg. ice cream), cream cheese or bread. Helpful hints: Extremely versatile flavouring. Oils are volatile and can dissipate with heat so best added as a post-preparation seasoning or cold-formulated. Use at around 0.5% (5g/kg) addition. Storage: Cool and dark Packaging: 100g PET jars, 1kg bags Many chefs find this a difficult herb to use and as there are many people who just don’t like aniseed as a flavour (often from abusing Ouzo, Pernod or Arrak in their younger days) it can be a highly polarising ingredient. The amount used is best kept light and we do find that 80% of those people who do not like aniseed are still able to enjoy Forest anise when it is well used in dishes. Its best use is probably in ice cream and then as a backnote flavour in seasonings and sauces. Forest anise is a natural flavour enhancer for tomatoes and other solanaceous vegetables as well as wild (and ordinary) mushrooms and it has some interesting bioactive effects which make it a valuable food ingredient.

  • Lemon Myrtle Sprinkle
    Lemon myrtle sprinkle could be considered even more lemony than lemon myrtle because of its unique formulation. It is a blend of the best quality lemon myrtle leaf; wild, rainforest lime pulp and lemon aspen pulp (specially dried in the dark and milled at sub-zero temperatures) which provide a hint of acid; and I have worked in more lemon myrtle using encapsulated, lemon myrtle essential oil. Finally, there’s some aniseed myrtle which is a good source of trans-anethole. Trans-anethole is a phyto-estrogen and immune system stimulant. This results in a mix which is probably closer to 125% as lemony as lemon myrtle leaf alone and a more rounded flavour as well.
