Bringing the heat from NYC - February 2018

February 01, 2018

Hi there,

A few weeks ago, I gave you a New Years Resolution to go to a hot sauce festival, and you’ll get all the motivation you need after listening to this podcast with Steve Seabury of High River Sauces in Brooklyn. Steve puts on the best hot sauce expos, and I'm pumped to be attending my third NYC Hot Sauce expo this April. Steve’s a hot sauce legend and has great advice for putting on hot sauce festivals, so I hope you enjoy this episode.



One borough over from Steve is Tim from Pepplish Provisions in Queens, NY. I enjoyed chatting with Tim and was really impressed with his sauces, especially his Peach Agave Garlic sauce, which I put into my Phad Thai recipe on Monday. You can listen to the episode below



I’m working on getting High River Sauces and Pepplish into more upcoming shipments of our Craft Hot Sauce of the Month Club, but we have no shortage of good sauces from small batch makers like them, so give it a try for a month here: Craft Hot Sauce of the Month Club


Lastly, here's a recipe that our follower Paul wanted to share with the chiliheads out there. This recipe is for the Northern Thai style chili sauce called “Naam price noum” and includes Carolina Reaper.


I had a great time talking to and meeting folks from the Craft Hot Sauce community this month, so thank you and keep it up!

What the podcast and community means to us - January 2022

January 01, 2022

I wanted your first note of the year to come from the hot sauce part of your life. Happy New Year! I hope you’re in good health and I’m counting on 2022 being a great year ahead.

I’m here to share a recent conversation I had, which is now on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast. Sometimes when I write this newsletter or market a hot sauce, it’s not my most natural channel of communication. The podcast has grown to be my favorite way of connecting with the wider craft hot sauce community and sharing those experiences with you.

I brought the energy to a super fun interview where I got to share my hot sauce journey. If you need to slow down for a bit and/or looking for some hot sauce inspiration, view it on YouTube here!

Gathering and sharing among the craft hot sauce community - November 2021

November 01, 2021

Hope you’re enjoying your week as we ease into the winter months. In the past couple of newsletters I’ve described the hustle and bustle of the chili pepper harvest season. I feel like the mania that built up during summer peaked a couple weeks ago at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo.

The event was everything we hoped for with lots of engagement with hot sauce enthusiasts and makers. We gave out more samples of Craic Sauce over a two day period than ever before, receiving lots of positive feedback, especially with our Brian Boru’s Curry sauce.
