I had the wonderful opportunity of speaking with one of the owners of WoW Wee sauce, Tony Griffin. He is an amazingly gentle and funny person. You can immediately tell that the WoW Wee company is his passion, his “baby” and he cares about his product. I got that immediately and found out that even though I’m a general “city” girl, we had much more in common than even I expected, with the loving reminder of Creole and Cajun family members in the Bayou of Louisiana. That is pre-Katrina. Many family members were displaced from their homes and had to move to states with other family members – Texas, DC, Georgia and others. It was a reminder of home, family and the unifying factor of a southern comfort… food.
It had been a few years since I heard someone speaking of mustard in tarter sauce, that isn’t something that is known very much outside of the sauce. Neither are the terms crawdads or boudin rouge. All Southern Cajun cuisine that is mmm, delicious. Along with the love of Cajun cuisine from my childhood visiting relatives, is the love of condiments. There isn’t really a condiment that I don’t love.
Whether it is Miracle Whip, mustard, ketchup or even wasabi sauce, I am finding a use for it. So are my children and my husband is the same way. He is more of a BBQ man. He puts barbeque sauce on just about any type of meat that you can think of. And if he isn’t putting barbeque sauce on it, then he is putting some combination of bbq and another sauce, whether it is Heinz 57 or A1. What he does have a tendency to stay away from is any kind of creamy sauce. He is the only one in the family that doesn’t like mayonnaise, ranch dressing or creamy vinaigrette. If I thought there was going to be an issue with the creamy WoW Wee sauces, I thought it was going to come from him. Imagine my surprise when he came back for seconds and thirds to, not just the Spicy Cajun WoWWee sauce but the original. He especially was fond of the Tarter sauce (I would like to say my deep fried fish had something to do with it also *wink*).
Upon opening the box, I received immediate requests from my children exactly what we are cooking and how we are cooking them. We just had to find the exact time to do it. So over the Independence Day weekend, we took advantage of the beautiful sun, great warm weather and took to grilling.
We made WoWWee Cajun Burgers, WoWWee Grilled Chicken and Batter Fried Fish.
