I was really surprised because Chef Mike came himself, the founder of Curry Love, to my apt to deliver the wonderful samples! At first I did not notice this but long after his short visit, Carolyn from the company informed me such news. I should have talked to him more about nutrition and FOOD! =/

Made with organic ingredients, these CURRIES taste fantastic! I got to try three flavors which are Passion Red Thai, Blissful Banana Ginger, and Luscious Yellow Thai.

Certification, Eco-Friendly Packaging & Giving Back

While most curry sauces sold in the U.S. are mass-produced in factories abroad, Buechi decided his line would be made domestically using only certified organic ingredients. The Curry Love™ products are certified organic by the USDA, and give back 1 percent of profits to 1% for the Planet. The Gift Set features degradable and recyclable packaging printed with soy inks.

I liked Red Thai Curry the best because it was the “HOT” one. Truthfully it was not spicy enough for me since I am used to VERY SPICY FOOD. So then I just added a lot of cayenne pepper. Then it was PERFECT!
this spicy red Thai curry combines cumin and turmeric with the soft and sweet flavors of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. Ingredients include: water, coconut milk, onions, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, lemongrass, corn starch, garlic, lime juice, tomato paste, spices and salt. Chef Buechi recommends this hot curry with chicken and fish.

Blissful Banana Ginger was interesting with the addition of banana. At first I did not think that I would enjoy it very much since I don’t enjoy fruits in savory dishes. However, I was totally wrong! Banana flavor wasn’t overpowering. It just added a nice lil sweetness to the wonderful aroma of curry.
this creamy combination of banana and coconut milk is balanced by the refreshing taste of ginger, lemongrass and lime juice. Ingredients include: water, coconut milk, dried bananas, rice flour, onions, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, lime juice, tomato paste, spices, sea salt and ground chile peppers. Chef Buechi recommends this medium curry with shrimp and chicken.

Luscious Yellow Thai was perfect with vegetables. I used okras, green beans, and cauliflowers. I didn’t need to add any additional spices or herbs since the curry comes with everything!
This yellow Thai curry combines the sweetness of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon with cumin and turmeric. Ingredients include: water, coconut milk, onions, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, lemongrass, corn starch, garlic, lime juice, tomato paste, spices and salt. Chef Buechi recommends this mild curry with meat and vegetables.

These curries are full of flavor and LOVE!

I want to thank Carolyn and Mike for letting me try their products. THANK YOU!

Here are some of the recipes that Carolyn sent me :

There are 2 releases – one featuring summer ingredients such as sugar snap peas, mushrooms, peppers, cilantro, eggplant. The second release is about using the Curry Love sauces as an alternative to the traditional BBQ marinade (using them on chicken, steak) and to flavor your Egg Salad.

Summer of Love!
