Culinary Challenge – HELP WANTED


When a client asks me a question I don’t have an answer to, I always reply with “I don’t know, but I will find out”. I think this shows honesty and respect as no one wants to be bullshitted. It is also a good learning opportunity for the both of us- which brings me to you for help. You see, I have posted  countless culinary challenges. I like to think they have all been a successful. Thank you for your comments and likes and encouragement.

Well, today I was restocking my bar cart, and I found this Brickford’s Sarsaparilla soda. I bought this beverage a loooong time ago and have no clue what to do with it. My spouse the chef has some ideas. YES, I love him but I thought you and I the everyday cooks could figure this one out. What would you make with this beverage (it does not have to be a cocktail) that tastes like black licorice (yuck!). No, I didn’t know it tasted that way; after all, it was a culinary challenge. I welcome your ideas and suggestion and as soon as I have a good one I will whip something up and post it.

  1. My Dad would probably have put in in bread pudding, as he once did Galloway’s cough syrup.

    I must partially recuse myself, as I have been a food service professional in another life, or a past portion of this one. I would use it to flavor a traditional custard type dessert. Like Derrick suggested. Maybe creme caramel or in a nut pie like pecan pie with some other toasted nut.
    I made one with macadamia nut and used Frangelico with a chocolate crust. I would have to taste it.

  3. I would tie a bow on it and give it to someone that likes the taste of black licorice. If you don’t like it, you aren’t going to like anything it flavors!

  4. A huge scoop of vanilla ice cream works for me!!!!

  5. It can be a good marinade for barbeque chicken wings. There’s a recipe for Cola Wings. Why not invent Sarsi Wings? Add some brown sugar, lemon, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, a pinch of salt and etc… I’ll have to try it on tofu. I love root beer with crispy waffle and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream 🙂
