Stacy of Secret Aardvark on the Story Behind the Original Craft Hot Sauce

Craft Hot Sauce Podcast

Secret Aardvark was founded in 2004 by creative and culinary genius Scott Moritz. His love of travel, surfing, making music and telling stories was matched only by his passion for discovering the flavors of the world.

Stacy shares how they began hocking sauce at Portland farmer’s markets and have grown to be available in over 1,000 roadhouses, eateries, and groceries all over the world.

Scott’s life in food began when he entered a chili cook-off at age thirteen. He went on to start a pie company, several catering businesses, a tamale cart, and was a co-founder of Portland’s own Salvador Molly’s. His adventures ended far too soon when we lost him to pancreatic cancer in 2009. Scott’s passing left Stacy and the Secret Aardvark family to carry forward his dream of sharing his unique, flavorful, and affordable sauces with the world.

Music guest is Scotland Barr & the Slow Drags and their song 1000 Roads.

About 12 years ago I became interested in growing food for myself and my wife. I convinced our building manager in Bronxville, New York to let me install some raised beds in the outdoor common areas. After a few successful seasons growing vegetables, I saw that one of the crops that lingered into the Fall in the Northeast was chilies.
