At Fang’s Chilli Sauce the philosophy of sharing food amongst family and friends rings true; it’s our favourite thing to do!
Therefore, it is no surprise that our sauce wasn’t created by accident. Developing the ideal chilli sauce has been a relentless four year journey of almost obsessive commitment and an abundance of passion, shared by Chef Clinton Fang Yuen and his team.
Our Chilli sauce is the product of countless batches and taste testings, followed by dining room discussions going late into the night, and even into the early hours. Flavour, consistency, balance and after tones, how one version compared to the next, all to define exactly what essential ingredients combine to make the perfect chilli sauce.
With one last tweak, the planets aligned and the ultimate Fang’s Chilli Sauce recipe was established.
Clinton Fang Yuen’s “Fangs Chilli Sauce” is now yours to enjoy and share.
Who better to create a sauce but a chef whose life has been dedicated to delivering unforgettable taste sensations to patrons, family and friends. And whose persistence led to the transformation of the humble chilli into a taste triumphant, full-flavoured chilli sauce laden with health benefits that he would be proud to mark with his family name.
A family meal is not a meal unless it is made from scratch as far as Clinton is concerned. Clinton’s passion for food is second only to his love for his family; his daughter and son are Clinton’s world.
Fang’s Chilli Sauce has been created at a request of Mick James, Clinton’s father in-law. A seasoned business traveller, he was desperate for “something fresh, something with spice, something that could go on anything.’ When travelling Mick would take a few bottles from different batches and provide essential feedback when he returned. Under Mick’s tutorage, the sauce continued to evolve….
Inspired by his wife’s support and Mick’s feedback, Clinton focused on formulating the chilli sauce, knowing he was close to perfection. Finally, a flawless Fang’s Chilli Sauce was locked in – and the Fang Yuen and James families have been adding it to everything from breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner and even desserts.
But, this is not the end of the story………Clinton has been working on other flavour packed products to be shared in due course.
“Food is a gift. Millions yearn for it daily, while millions waste it. Food can remove barriers, boarders, religions and prejudice. Food equals life, food is our life” Clinton Fang Yuen
Nikki is not only Clinton’s childhood sweetheart, mother to their children and administration dynamo, she is also a cornerstone of The Fang Group.
Her belief, support and trust in her husband’s vision were key factors in the conception of Fang’s Chilli Sauce. “It’s a sauce that you have never tasted before and will want more, adding it to everything”.
Nikki was instrumental in insisting Clinton complete the recipe as he had come so far and was so close.
“Having family to support, children to nurture and guide and great food to share makes life really enjoyable. My family is everything to me, by sharing our sauce with your family it invites you to be part of ours. Welcome to the family!” Nikki
Clint was sold after the first taste. He knew they had created something special, and that Fang’s Chilli Sauce had a place in the market, especially for those who are health conscious. Clint can remember eating hundreds of meals that he wished he could have enjoyed with Fang’s Chilli Sauce!
