Local Irish Ingredients Plus Asian Tradition
My sauce story
For me Being a chef means that i am on the hunt for the newest and most intriguing flavours. I find my inspiration in the places closest to my heart. Travelling has enriched my experience of food and opened my eyes (and my palate) to new tastes across the globe. Recently, I have been going to Hong Kong, the city where I was born. My favourite thing to do in Hong Kong is visiting the street food stalls, which are such a big part of the city’s culture.
Each time I come back to Ireland, which I feel is my home country now, I searched for the same flavours and spices as I tasted abroad. As I didn't find anything quite like it here, I created this Hong Kong style hot Sauce. I feel like it is packed with the true essence of Hong Kong, and is reminiscent of its delicious flavours.
"Most hot sauce is based with garlic which will give you the after taste for hours or days, but with Hong Kong street sauce its not made with garlic but with Miso , so you don't get that garlic after taste all day"!!
