Essie Spice's must-have sauces and spice rubs are the result of one woman's culinary creativity and playfulness with global flavors. Originally from Ghana, Essie Bartels draws inspiration from not only West Africa but all around the world. Coco-for-Garlic is an amazingly balanced sauce that starts with a base of aromatic coconut oil (typical of West African cuisine) then layers on savory, earthy elements inspired by Bartels' travels to western Europe, such as roasted garlic, shallots, tomato paste and bell peppers. Rounded out with sweet honey and fiery habanero pepper, Coco-for-Garlic is an absolutely one-of-a-kind ingredient that's more than the sum of its parts. Whisk it into pan sauces, swirl it into a creamy dip, use it as the base for a marinade or dressing—the possibilities are endless!
