THE SECRET IS IN THE SAUCE

Or so says every chef worth their salt. According to the Annual Chef Predictions of the National Restaurant Association, 2018 will be the year of global ethnic condiments. We couldn’t agree more.

 

Here are three ethnic condiments we’ve been using in our global cuisine dishes for quite some time now :) Guess we beat the world in this race.

 

Sriracha

A type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. It is named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in Chonburi Province of eastern Thailand, where it may have been first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants.

 

Sambal
