What’s an age-old tradition used to enhance and flavor food? The condiment. Across the world condiments are added into and on top of dishes as a purveyor of a specific flavor.

While condiments are characteristically a side dish to the main show, this week we’re putting them in the spotlight. From hot sauce to pasta sauce, learn about the importance and variety of classic flavor enhancers. Plus, hear more about a climate-change induced condiment shortage and the craze of a cult classic sauce brought to life.
