Are you a Saucy person when it comes to food?

Updated on January 4, 2012

I have a lovely Chinese friend, who has a special sauce with whatever she eats at lunch time. It’s a sweet and peppery sauce, which she keeps in the office Stationery Cabinet. If we decide not to eat in the staff canteen, we will take our meals upstairs to the office and eat at our desks and she would pour it all over her rice or chips or whatever we are eating. It's called Sweet and Chilli Sauce.


Then there’s me! For me, it’s Maggi Sauce. I have a naughty habit of putting it on not just rice dishes and potato dishes – but also in a sandwich or on omelettes. (Maggi Sauce is under the Chilli Sauces in the photo)

I love Maggi Sauce and won’t be surprised if very soon, I start putting it in my cornflakes. It has a nice, distinguished sweet, salty taste.

★ツ Do you have a particular sauce, that makes your meal complete? Particularly, my friends outside Europe. I hope to remember it, for when I visit your Country.

      I love anything spicy, so Sriracha comes to mind. I know of a friend who carries Tobasco sauce in her purse--good for any occasion. Thanks for the saucy hub.

      I love applying a good BBQ Sauce spiced up with a little Hot Sauce. I have one personal sauce that I have created, blending things together but since my taste is well towards the very "Hot" I hesitate to share it.

      My partner has brown sauce on every meal, (and i mean every meal inc roast dinner, Christmas dinner etc). His Dad is exactly the same. I still remember the horror on my Nans face when she made a lovely cottage pie, only for him to smoother it in brown sauce lol :)

      I like soy sauce a lot. You can pretty much put it on anything and it'll taste better. Interesting hub!

      I'm a sriracha lover (I think that's how it's spelled)'s also called "cock sauce" in the US because it has a rooster on the label. Anywho, it's a spicy Asian sauce...most people have heard of it...especially if you like Asian food. Thanks for a cool hub! I'm a SAUCY kinda girl. :)
