THE RILEY/LAND COLLECTION
I started seeing ads from Fly By Jing on Facebook months ago and loved their fun, effervescent branding. And we all know how Facebook ads work: once I clicked on it, I saw it literally every time I scrolled. So, I bit the bullet, ordered their original Sichuan Chili Crisp (Seriously, that stuff is amazing), and it sold out quickly. They were just releasing two new products, so I went ahead and got them too. This is one of them.
Think of this mala spice mix as a rocket booster for your food. With a mix of 11 herbs and spices, like erjing-tiao chili, the prized, tongue-tingling tribute pepper, and umami-rich mushrooms, it captures the signature flavors of sichuan cuisine. Use it as a dry rub for meat, sprinkle it on roasted potatoes, and try whisking it into salad dressings.
Words from the owner: "I founded Fly By Jing in 2018, inspired by the amazing flavors of my hometown Chengdu and its famous fly restaurants— soulful hole-in-the-wall eateries so good they attract diners like flies. Fly By Jing doesn't conform to anyone else's notions of value, taste, tradition. It is one person's recipes, one person's vision, and one person's story. With these products, I'm telling you mine."
