Product Information

"When the Smithsonian does an exhibition on hot sauces in America, let's hope the curator is Jennifer Trainer Thompson. She's the author, traveler, chef, shiitake-farmer and hot sauce creator who set it all in motion....she brought popularity and polish to an otherwise obscure hobby practiced by culinary eccentrics across the country." Chile Pepper
