We Spiced-Up Artisanal LA!

Artisanal LA

Artisanal LA

This past weekend we participated in the inaugural Artisanal LA in Downtown Los Angeles, at the Cooper Building. It was a collection of small artisan vendors, ranging from beekeepers to vodka producers, baked goodies to pasta sauces.  

We were able to showcase our gourmet hot sauces, dry rubs/seasonings, and fiery sweet-heat popcorns. There was fantastic response to all of our products and we got to meet wonderful food enthusiasts and vendors from the local area. JD was even interviewed by an Italian journalist.

We had locally grown (Ventura County) Bhut Jolokia Ghost Peppers on display (thanks Red Hot Foods!) to help us explain the hottest pepper in the world that we use in some of our products. We even Sold Out of our Ghost Pepper Sauce.

We can’t wait to do this event again. Nice job Shawna, Alyx, and crew at Artisanal LA!
