ISO hot sauce gift sets either combine my own or pre-made sets

free sample addict aka Tracy L | Nov 21, 2012 09:31 PM

Two men on my list are spicy food fans. One is a great cook and particularly likes Asian hot sauces. He doesn't live near any Asian markets, but I do. He already has the typical stuff like sambal and sirricha (sp?). I live near a 99 ranch and have access to other Asian markets. Does anyone have some suggestions for sauces that are readily available yet not so run of the mill they'll be found at a regular grocery store?I am dating him and would like to make it a little more personal than a gift set from Cost Plus.

The second guy is my friend's husband, he loves spicy food and they both cook so I'd like to find either a hot sauce gift set or a chile sampler for cooking. I have given this couple Penzey's in the past so another brand or combination would be great.

I live in Northern California and have TJ's, Whole Foods, Fresh and Easy, Cost Plus (World Market), Corti's, Taylors, Ottos Japanese Market, 99 ranch and an abundance of Mexican markets. I can also travel to San Francisco.
