HERE WE COME!!!!
This was an exciting trip for our sauce bottles! But especially for the Sweet & Spicy Chili Sauce that has its root from Korean Chili Paste! During my short trip to Korea, I had to pay a visit to the Kyong Bok Goong Palace. This 500 years old dynasty perfected the use of spicy chili paste during its time and has passed its culinary culture directly to the modern-day cuisine you find from Korea.
Korean cuisine and sauces are known for its balance between all the flavors and also known for liberal usage of garlic and chili. And I have just done that when I created this sauce for my restaurant. Even though it is heavily modified to suit modern New American Cuisine that embraces wide variety of cuisines across the world, I wanted to have one sauce that had its root from Korea.
This sauce has been touted as one of the most unique and flavorful hot sauces that have versatile uses. So it was fitting for me to make a quick tour of the palace where it ruled Chosun Dynasty before the modern day Korea established.
Now you know this sauce has a root that is pretty deep!
