Lucky Cat 6th June Playlist and Mixcloud link - Sriracha Sauce

Sat 6th June 2015

This week's show was dedicated to srirahca sauce. I concentrate on the story of the Huy Fong brand.

Named after a coastal town in Thailand Sriracha sauce is now a global phenomenon.  In particular the Huy Fong brand has become an international cult favourite.  There have been songs, cookbooks and even a documentary about Huoy Fong brand sriracha sauce.

The brand is named after the Tawianses freighter ship that brought founder David Tran to Hong Kong as a refugee from Vietnam in 1978.  From Hong Kong David Tran went on to California USA and started making the now much beloved sriracha sauce.
