Burma In Ya Belly – Condiments, Cooking Classes, Catering  and The Bear and the Ladle Gourmet Foods  ARE RELOCATING TO TASMANIA

We appreciate your patience whilst we do so and get settled in our new commercial space located in the Derwent Valley/ Central Highlands region, Tasmania. We’ve loved our journey so far where it all began on the Sunshine Coast in 2009, BUT we’re moving on – Bigger and Better. Change, transition and growth have been key in the last year and so we’re taking the time to bed down some new, solid foundations for the next phase of these businesses, which remain my passion and joy!

Therefore no further orders can be processed/dispatched as the business will be on hold till mid June 2022, till we get settled. It’s exciting times ahead and I invite you to ‘watch what happens’ as this new exciting, personal and professional phase begins.

The Bear and The Ladle artisan condiments and the Burma In Ya Belly Asian inspired chilli range are multi award winning condiments made with love and pride in our commercial kitchen based on the Sunshine Coast.

They are the perfect accompaniment to your favourite dishes.

The Bear and the Ladle range is Modern Australian with a European influence and includes mustard’s and sauces that will become the superstars at your BBQ’s and tasty relishes for your antipasto platters, cheese platters and alongside roasted meats. Our relishes, marinades and herb rubs will take your gourmet dishes to ‘next level with WOW factor’ easily and without fuss and our AWARD WINNING Hot Sauce will become a staple necessity in your home!

Honestly our lives have changed (for the better) This stuff is insanely good…This Beetroot Mustard is amazingly good.

Lisa Wilkinson, Today Show - Channel Nine

I’ve just had a taste sample of the Coriander Honey mustard and its like WOW I’m not wasting money buying generic mustard from the big grocery stores any more – they have NO flavour!  So thank you from my taste-buds. Beautiful local products made on the Sunshine Coast and you should be SO PROUD of what you are doing !!!! It is AMAZING.

So much added depth of flavour using your De-Vinely Red in our stews and casseroles. Minty Rosemary spice blend is my husband’s favourite on lamb roasts now and adding your Coriander Honey Mustard to aioli makes a perfect dressing for potato salad with a depth of flavour. We love your products.

Helen Wright, LeagueNet

Being Vegetarian I am always looking for new flavours to enjoy. Your products tick the box of new and exciting flavours and then some. I especially love the Apricot Relish.
