He’s created the product that so many top chefs use — and me, too! — Sriracha sauce. How does it differ from let’s say, Crystal, which I also use? Theirs incorporates a different hot pepper, jalapeno, as well as garlic and sugar. Very Asian!
The famous folks that use the “rooster sauce,” named after the maker’s astrological sign on the bottle, include Jean-Georges Vongerichten, his protege’ Bryan Caswell, the Applebee’s chain and Fleming’s. You can get it everywhere — or online at www.huyfong.com
