Silagy Sauce

Posted by Brian on Sep 9, 2017 6:12:24 PM

Silagy Sauce was born of my passion for creating delicious meals to keep family and friends gathered around the table together. Our loved ones had such enthusiasm for the sauces, I felt inspired to create flavors for my community to share around their own tables. Food brings people together, and I’ve been so humbled to create a sauce that, as we like to say, “ignites” people’s passion for coming together around their favorite foods.

Born to Hula

Hot sauce lovers and chilliheads many already know about Born to Hula. Before meeting Amy and Ed, I've noticed their logo and seen The Ghost of Ancho bottle in the fridges of many of my friends. It wasn't until the 2017 NYC Hot Sauce Expo that I met Ed and Amy.

I loved hearing about his unique flavor pairings with an important ingredient and his super hot chillis.

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Posted by Brian on May 11, 2017 8:41:08 PM

When I started in 2014, I quickly heard about Lucky Dog Hot Sauce. However, it wasn't until last month that I met Scott Z. at the 2017 NYC Hot Sauce Expo, and it was also the first time I got to taste his hot sauces. He's a really funny guy, and his sauces are on point. Fresh, well balanced, and unqiue. Scott took his time to write a great craft hot sauce profile, so please do enjoy!

I met Bravado Spice at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo last year, and their fruit-based sauces really stood out to me. We will both be at the Expo again in a couple weeks, and look forward to reconnecting with them, and getting some of their craft hot sauces on our website. Their co-owner James Nelson (who was actually on MasterChef season 4) shares a little bit about their background and operation. Many thanks Bravado!

Mikey V's Food

Posted by Brian on Feb 4, 2017 8:00:00 PM

From Founder Mikey V:
My passion for salsa and sauces started when I was about 13 years old. I wasn't like every other kid. I always had a job of some sort, like a paper route, mowing grass etc. I would use the money I earned from these jobs to buy hot sauces at my local hot sauce store. While my buddies were buying video games or baseball cards, I was buying hot sauce. Fast forward 20+ years... I moved to Austin, Texas and my brother dared me to enter my "family famous" hot sauce into the Austin Hot Sauce Festival's competition. I did, and I won first place! At that point I decided to launch my company.
