Listen: Essential Asian Sauces

Welcome to Splendid Table Selects, where we pull together some of our favorite converations that prove to be especially useful in the kitchen. In this Splendid Table Selects, we're featuring a new interview with Dan Souza, Editor-in-Chief of Cook's Illustrated for America's Test Kitchen. He and our Managing Producer Sally Swift talk about the importance of three sauces that are essential to Asian cuisine: oyster sauce, fish sauce, and hoisin sauce. They discuss how the sauces are made, used in cooking, and the winner of each sauce category in a recent taste test. Dan also shared a recipe with us for a Vegan "Fish Sauce." You can use your favorite oyster, fish or hoisin sauce on one (or more) of the many recipes we've linked below.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor Bob’s Red Mill for their support of this Splendid Table Selects podcast series.
