Making Great Sauces
We Use The Best Ingredients From US Sources, Not Cheap Imported Ingredients
Let's face it folks, bottled pastas sauces are as ubiquitous as toasters or diet soda. Their are hundreds of brands of sauce on store shelves all vying for your attention. This begs the question why would a start up company like ours attempt to market a product in the face of such stiff competition? Well just like the iPhone was introduced into stiff cell phone competition yet it proved to be better, we seek to disrupt this market as well. Our sauces have more value, more ingredients, more flavor and more versatility then our competitors, bar none.
Open up the jar of the competitions's product you will see these sauces are watery, runny and devoid of ingredients. Most competitors use inferior ingredients like tomato paste, lots of water, dehydrated onions, garlic and get these ingredients from the cheapest possible off-shore sources. If a competitor does use fresh ingredients they hardly put any in the product. They attempt to dazzle you with marketing claims like "It's In There" or "100% Imported Italian Tomatoes" or "Grandma's Secret Italian Recipe" or "Made in A Green Facility" or "Real Italian Taste" etc. Pretty much total HOG WASH.
How The Other Guys Do It
Most sauces are bottled in such high volumes that they cannot spend the time needed to use real culinary techniques. Most of our competitors add all the ingredients at once in a computer controlled bulk tank and heat exchanger to quickly bottle their sauce. Workers follow computer programs designed by a food scientists. This is not the way to produce great tasting sauces, not even close!
We Use Classic Culinary Techniques
Standing in stark contras, we use small kettles to slowly saute onions and garlic in extra virgin olive oil then use a special oil infusion technique that pulls out flavors from our signature ingredients into our oil to make the sauces truly something special. This takes time and personal attention by our team of dedicated chefs. There are no computers or industrial machinery making our sauce....just real cooking techniques and real ingredients to make real food.....what a concept!
