Chef Chris Schlesinger joins the Craft Hot Sauce podcast. Chris was born and raised in Virginia, where he first developed his love for barbecue, spicy food, and live fire cooking.
Schlesinger has won multiple James Beard Awards for Best Chef of the Northeast, and he put Boston on the map for chiliheads in the 80's with his Inner Beauty Hot Sauce and the Hell Nights put on at his restaurant.
I have a love and passion for all things culinary, food is my lover and my friend. That being said, I cook quite a bit. At least twice a day, everyday. When I moved to Decatur, Georgia from Monterey, California that passion was put into overdrive.
I had an uncommon start-up journey. In 2008, a friend of mine and I decided to make a business. We focused on events and parties. Therefore we catered, delivered drinks, rented equipment, and so on. Hell Yeah!
