When Melissa attended the Chefs' Festival at the Kapalua Wine Symposium, Roger Dikon (executive chef of the Maui Prince Hotel), gave her this exotic and terrific recipe. Serve it at your next party to really impress your guests with your good taste.
Here is a typical Madagascar-style sauce that was served at the Restaurant L'Exotic in Montreal. The sauce accompanied most of the entrees at L'Exotic and it also can be added to soups or stews to spice them up.

This is the sauce that is traditionally served over smoked ribs in Memphis and other parts of Tennessee. Some cooks add prepared yellow mustard to the recipe. It can be converted into a basting sauce by adding more beer and a little more vinegar. Add more hot sauce to taste, or substitute red chile or cayenne powder

This sweet and sour fish sauce dip is made spicy with chopped chilies and garlic, while fresh-squeezed lime or lemon gives it a sour edge. Called nuoc cham or nuoc mam cham in Vietnamese, it is the ubiquitous condiment of the Vietnamese table. Drizzle it over grilled meat set atop thin rice noodles tossed with shredded vegetables for refreshing fare, perfect for summer.
