We've all tasted food so good that we just can't stop eating it. And we can hardly explain why. In Thai cuisine this is known as the YUM factor. A food tastes truly spectacular when four key components are well balanced: Spice, Sweet, Sour, Salt. This balance is what I strove for in Sweet Magma.
SPICE: I choose the best hot peppers I can find for the season.
SWEET: Blended together with sweet peppers and sweet onions helps to relieve the stinging heat.
SOUR: Some people look down their noses at hot sauces that use vinegar. Balanced correctly however, vinegar gives a slight 'tang' sensation that stimulates the taste buds towards the back of the tongue. It's not a pucker type of sour, but a balanced sour that helps to light up the entire pallet for a truly enjoyable experience.
SALT: Last but not least is salt. Most people won't deny that salt is the truly universal flavor enhancer and no dish should be left without it.
