As in fashion, the pink wave also has its fans in the kitchen. From the ‘pink sauce’ TikTok phenomenon to Pierre Hermes’ flagship cakes, colorful variations.

The shimmery pink wave also makes its way into the kitchen, starting with Miami chef Chef P’s mysterious “pink sauce.” Since June, nearly a million internet users have flocked to TikTok to watch the 29-year-old delight in fried chicken slathered in fluorescent pink sauce, the result of a mysterious recipe that only she would have the secret to. Chef Pie did very well in keeping the taste of his sauce a mystery for a long time until he decided to sell his famous “pink sauce” in a ketchup bottle style package. Obliged to comply with US legal obligations, the product label lists sunflower oil, dragon fruit, garlic, honey, pepper, water, distilled vinegar, pink salt, lemon juice, citric acid and milk. The problem: Many people have reported getting sick (or even hospitalized) after ingesting a mixture that has traveled for long periods of time in the refrigerator without packaging. So much so that Chef Pi is now facing a veritable backlash on social media where he is accused of “They poisoned the nation”.

“Color should be one of the reasons for success”

Far from being a quaint Floridian dish, the pink color in cooking is mostly used in baking. Think marzipan (in the shape of a little pig) or even cupcakes, donuts and eclairs covered in fiery pink icing… at Pierre Hermé in Isfahan, the house’s bestseller (the cake is made from a macaroon biscuit).
