Q. and A. with ‘hot sauce man’

Jamaica Plain resident Rohan Sookraj, who is known as “the hot sauce man” and ‘the pepper guy’, grew up in South Oropouche, Trinidad. He came to the United States in the late 1980s and for the past 26 years has worked as a materials supply assistant lead at the Boston Medical Center. Several years ago, his sister said he should sell his famous hot sauce to help raise money to throw a holiday party for the children in his hometown. This year, they raised enough money for 200 children to attend the holiday party in South Oropouche and also for a holiday party at the Sparks Center in Mattapan. The Gazette recently conducted a question-and-answer session through email with Rohan. (The session has been edited.)
