Spices, herbs and sauces of whatever cuisine I'm cooking defines my "go to".

Red Boat 40°N fish sauce and Shark Brand Sriracha are absolutely my favorite go-to condiments. My people's ethnic sauce would probably be Heinz ketchup but I rarely use the stuff.

these are what i cook with (hmm, these are with which i cook?)

but 97 was asking for ethnicities, no matter how many you have from a purebred to the most mangy mutt.

i'm an irish and norwegian halfbreed, so it would be hp steak sauce for the irish part (good on a lot of stuff, from an irish breakfast, to steak, to chip butties)

and white cream sauce with dill on everything
for the norwegian side.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

If I went with ethnic, I got German, Scottish, and probably some American Indian.

So it's sauerkraut, haggis, and pemmican.

What I actually use is a lot of great stuff from the Asian market, much Heinz ketchup, and salsa.
