Kenji's Picks Hot Sauce Gift Set

Gift Box

We're excited to partner with J. Kenji López-Alt, award winning author, food writer, and chef, to create a gift set with some of his favorite hot sauces. 10% of the proceeds will benefit Colombia Diversa, doing important work for LGBTQ rights in Colombia. 

This set contains:

  • Hot Winter Original
    The star of this sauce is an heirloom pepper variety developed by Shaun Winter after he found an unusually hot pepper in a field of mild Jimmy Nardellos. The peppers are blended coarsely with a simple backdrop of cider and rice vinegars and hardneck garlic. (Note: while Original is sold out, we will substitute in Hot Winter Aleppo)
  • Chiporro Rocoto Hot
    A sauce created by Peruvian Chef Carlos Ruiz, featuring the Rocoto pepper, an apple shaped pepper with black seeds and a moderately hot kick. It's balanced with a creamy base of tomato, onions, and herbs.
  • Infinity Chipotle
    An earthy, sauce with upfront sweetness from peaches, along with molasses and Chipotle peppers (Smoked Jalapeño) for a relatively mild kick. Consistently one of our most popular sauces.
  • Queen Majesty Scotch Bonnet & Ginger
    A classic blend of Caribbean flavors, with the heat of yellow Scotch Bonnets, warming ginger, and tangy citrus. A great addition to jerk chicken or scrambled eggs. (Note: will replace with Queen Majesty Red Habanero & Black Coffee if sold out)
  • Lucky Dog Brown Label
    A multiple award winning sauce featuring a nicely balanced blend of Chipotles, mustard and cumin, along with some Scotch Bonnets for an extra kick. The subtle sweetness of Bartlett pear and figs rounds it out.
  • Secret Aardvark Habanero
    This iconic Portland-made sauce has a cult following, and as Kenji put it, is "weirdly delicious." Tomato, carrots, mustard, Habanero peppers, and white wine vinegar meld together to make for a very versatile sauce.
