When the bottle arrives, the first thing you do is pop it open and give it a smell. You get this wholesome fruit forward note, that smells almost like Pineapple candy or a concentrated flavor that comes from canned pineapple. Naturally the next immediate step is to pour some on your finger or spoon and give it a try and that is exactly what we did. Wow…Sweet and then immediate heat. Enough to make you pause for concern, but keep reading as it might surprise you.
Not being a pepper head, I was immediately concerned that the heat would be too much after that simple taste, but decided to continue cooking the chicken and lather it on at the end for those final few minutes.
After pulling the chicken off the grill you are met with a drool worthy sheen. It looks as if food artists were preparing the food for the camera with non-edible items like lacquer or clear paint. Picture looking at a freshly detailed car and the shine that comes off that carnauba waxed finish. That is what the Kosmos Q glaze is giving to food.
The surprise came after taking the first bite. You get the sweetness, but it was much less candy like, and instead you are greeted with what tastes like pineapples that had been freshly picked and cut open to devour. A freshness so to speak, that is fruit forward with a mild slow burn at the end, that is not nearly as strong or heated as the taste straight from the bottle. The fire is still there, but it has mellowed to just the end in a delightful flavor combination that makes you want to conjure up ways to include this wonderful glaze with everything you cook.
