Maverick Chef's Baseball-Themed Hot Sauce Scores Home Run

  • Youk's Hot Sauce
We discovered Youk's Hot Sauce as an added option to our treasured Mariquita Mystery Box last week. Turns out it's a collaboration between the farm of the local culinary stars (from Alice to Zuni), Maverick chef Scott Youkilis, and his baseball star of a bro, Boston Red Sox baseman Kevin Youkilis.

The triple red chili threat of organic jalapeño, serrano, and cayenne peppers isn't thermonuclear, but enough of it will still please a spicehead. We haven't yet found something that it doesn't compliment, with so much more body and depth of flavor than the mass-marketed stuff we normally keep in the refrigerator door.

Find it online, at Maverick (3316 17th St. at Mission), and at Prather Ranch (Ferry Plaza at Embarcadero) for a suggested retail price of $7.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
