Helping You Wok the Wok

January 2020 | Lisa, Principal Scientist – Process Flavors

There’s no mistaking that distinctive, irresistible flavor of food prepared in a seasoned Chinese wok. So if you want to deliver the true taste of authentic Chinese, you’ve got to include the flavors that come with this iconic cooking method. But don’t worry, we’ve already done it for you.

To help you ‘wok the wok’, we developed a spot-on reaction flavor that delivers an initial hit of toasted sesame, followed by candied, sweet-and-spicy ginger and the experience of savory umami wok notes. It’s the real deal.

We know because we’ve already put it to the test.  We infused genuine wok flavor into a sesame-candied ginger brittle as a new twist on those popular sesame-flake candies from China. The experience delivered an initial hit of toasted sesame is followed by sweet and spicy, candied ginger rounded off with those savory umami wok notes that bring the sixth sense to life. This one of a kind flavor is a definite palate pleaser.

If you want to ‘wok’ the house with this unbelievable reaction flavor, try it in dips, snack mix seasonings, salad dressings, marinades, chips, crackers, hummus and just about anything else you want to transform into an authentic Chinese-inspired delicacy.

Let’s get to ‘wok’, contact your McCormick account manager or contact us today.
