FKC Sauce is a unique inspiration from our love for food and family heritage of culinary art. As a kid I used to sit next to my grandfather as he would grind a unique blend of spices in a huge mortar and pestle. And I asked him questions, Grandpa, why did you put so little of this spice and bit more of that? He smiled and said, I don't know son, I think you will like it when we leave the paste on meat for tonight and cook it tomorrow.
I knitted brows and thought he didn't know what he was doing. Next evening, he prepared the wood oven with a set of grills at a specific height and lit it up. He watched as the flames started to mount, after around 20 mins, he had put a small piece of meat on the grill and left it to burn as he observed the flames and adjusted the height of grills. Before the family started to assemble in the courtyard for the feast, his calm demeanour and amazing aromas would travel to the every corner of our house dragging everybody next to him, he didn't have to announce that the food is ready! Everyone felt hungry already.
The first serve was always offered to the kids and being the youngest I would always get to taste the feast before others. Everyone whom he served the first portion wouldn't talk for a while and simple express yummazing express with hand and facial gestures. You've guessed it right, they had a mouthful. And the evening carried on with telling the saga how he learnt it from his grandfather. I miss my Grandpa but his stories and love for taste is still quite a legacy of our family that would be passed on to the next generation.
Since we love food, we love to share stories from other great legacies too. Did you know the story of PERI-PERI Sauce?
Chicken in a PERI-PERI Sauce
