Tamarind, a tropical fruit, is paired with an array of chilies in this exciting BBQ Sauce. Sherone Hakman's chef career took him on a culinary journey through Southeast Asia where he created recipes fusing local ingredients with his Mediterranean roots. The result? This east meets west BBQ edition which combines the deep sweetness of dates, tangy tamarind, bright lemongrass and the richness of sesame oil. Yum!
Sharone Hakman has always been the guy behind the grill, and now he's the man behind the sauce. His goal? To redefine bbq and elevate it with real body, developed flavor, and sophistication.
In 2010, Sharone earned a spot on the FOX Network’s MasterChef – a reality cooking show which sought to find America’s most promising amateur chef – and stole the show when he crafted a bbq sauce that judges declared his “secret weapon.”
He tested his creation; feeding bbq sauce-smothered steak to 500 Marines at Camp Pendleton, and satisfying America’s road warriors with gourmet bbq burgers during a truck stop challenge. When TV’s toughest food critics and chefs were blown away, Sharone knew it was time to share.
