Asian Home Gourmet sauces


I recently discovered these sauces and spice pastes. They are great quality (which is echoed in other posts I have been reading) and the suggested recipes on the back are easy to follow and create.

They have over 30 varieties. The company site was not working at the time I created this entry so check out the selection at Amazon. I first saw the sauces when wandering down the food isle in London Drugs of all places, but the local Vancouver Sunrise Market in Chinatown has the largest selection I have seen.

Try the suggested recipes or have fun experimenting. Last night I added the Cantonese Claypot Rice paste to sesame oil and fried spring onions, cherry tomatoes, cilantro then added two eggs and served on top of an English muffin – tasted great. The paste had a similar consistency to Hoisin sauce but tasted quite different, made from tomato paste, ginger and sesame oil.

Has anyone else tried these sauces, what was your experience?

    The Thai ones are my favourites. Killarney Market has a good selection too.

    Awesome!! I thought i was the only one that used Asian Home Gourmet packs. I use the butter chicken spice mix, and it’s pretty good. For a quick fix of butter chicken it’s pretty decent.

    Does anyone know where I can find these in Toronto, Canada? They used to have them at Loblaws supermarket, but I don’t see them anymore.

    I love the Thai Spicy Basil Rice, but I can’t find a store locally in Toronto that sells them anymore :-(

    I am in toronto as well. Yeah I know I love their butter chicken but it si hard to find them. I got butter chicken at sobeys once but i can’r anymore. There is a Asian grocery store at sheppard and warden that carries some varieties. I haven’t seen the basil rice one though. It sounds devine though. I would say check the asian supermarkets whenever you come across them.

    You can find them in most of the Asian supermarkets in Toronto.
    Oriental Supermarket: Denision and kennedy
    T&T Supermarket: Warden and Steeles
    T&T Supermarket: 222 Cherry Street, Downtown Toronto
    Ocean’s Supermarket:4557 Hurontario Street, Mississauga
    Try the big Asian supermarkets like T&T,Ocean’s,Oriental. They all have it.
