About the Producer:
Andrew Garrett grew up on a small farm in the California wine country. During a three year stint in the military stationed in Europe, he began to develop his palate and interest in the culinary arts. Upon returning to California, Garrett attended a culinary school. After moving to Portland and working in its culinary scene for a number of years, Garrett noticed a lack in the market for a high-quality hot sauce that could be used as more than just a condiment. His goal was to bring something unique to the hot sauce market, while also inspiring chefs and home cooks to create new and diverse meals.
