Beyond a recipe designed to teleport its eaters to the street vendor stands in Israel, Chef Wheelhouse shared a personal story of inspiration. Memories are where many culinary creations begin, and for Chef Wheelhouse, this memory stemmed from a move to Jerusalem at the age of 12. Using Minor’s GreenLeaf™ Cilantro Pesto as the foundation for her S’hug, a complicated Middle Eastern hot sauce becomes approachable while Minor’s Flavor Concentrates enables ease in her layering of bright, vibrant punches of flavor.
