About Banhoek Chilli Oil

Banhoek Chilli Oil is the brainchild of Stellenbosch local, Ken Kinsey-Quick. It was borne from a hunger for the subtle, chilli-infused oils that he enjoyed while living abroad in Paris. Together with his brother-in-law, Adi Meintjes, both took on the challenge of creating the perfect chilli oil. They realised that when chillies are mixed with olive oil, the taste of the olives gets in the way of the pure chilli flavour, and so chose to infuse their flavour in high-quality canola oil — so that it doesn't get in the way of the chilli taste. The result is a subtle chilli spice that enhances dishes without overpowering them.

Banhoek Chilli Oil won the Great Taste Award in 2019, hosted by The Guild of Fine Food.
