We’re back! And the 2013 World Food Championships in Las Vegas were awesome. A bit ago, I (hey- Colette here!) posted a pre-trip blog post about the WFC, so if you missed that, take a look real quick and catch up on the event details. Suzie “Saucy Mama” Barhyte and her darling friend Patricia were able [Read More]
It’s almost Super Bowl time, which means we’re gearing up for some delicious eats, cold beverages, friendly gatherings…and, oh yeah! A football game. We don’t have an NFL team here in Oregon, but many fans are excited to cheer on the Seahawks since they’re from the Northwest. But that doesn’t mean we’re short any Broncos fans either! In any case, to us the Super Bowl means super awesome food, including the epitome of game day grub: hot wings! So here we go…
Barhyte Specialty Foods is excited to announce the addition of three new items in the Saucy Mama family, each which will add some serious “zazzle” to your chicken wings and other goodies, too (recipes to come)! These unique flavors were introduced at the 2014 Winter Fancy Food Show and were well received by show-goers. Please welcome:
- Orange Habanero Wing Sauce: a citrus sauce with some kick! It’s all about sweet and spicy with this one.
- Honey Barbeque Wing Sauce: sweet honey makes this sauce a traditional favorite.
- Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce: a mixture of traditional Jerk spices lets your taste buds fly away to sunny Jamaica!
While they will soon be available for sale on our website, we are giving away TWO Wing Sauce Samplers (which include a bottle each of our new flavors, plus our two classics: Hot and Spicy Garlic) to TWO lucky fans before they’re even ready for sale! Want to win? Here’s how:
This wing sauce photo will be posted on each of our social media sites; you decide where to share! Just like or share, retweet, re-pin, or like on Instagram to win. Choose one or choose all. And while you’re at it, make sure to follow us if you’re not already. We’ll choose two winners at random to win a Wing Sauce Sampler on Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at 11pm PST.
BONUS POINTS: snap a photo of your saucy self, yummy food, drinks, party or whatever else you come up with (just keep it appropriate please!) during your Super Bowl party, and share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using hashtag #SaucyMamaSuperBowl
Winners will be notified via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and must email email@example.com to claim their prize. Questions? Email us!
We’re back from yet another Fancy Food Show! This winter show in San Francisco was an exciting one for Barhyte, but we’ll get to our announcements in another post soon
As usual, we took a short tour around the convention center (well, not the ENTIRE show…it’s massive!), and we found some fun products to share with you guys. Take a look!
With flavors ranging from “Mighty Maple” to “The Heat is On”, we were amazed at the variety of Peanut Butter flavors this company had to offer. Although a spicy peanut butter may sound different, it’s probably one of those foods that really just works.
The light and slightly flavored beverages offered at Ayala’s booth were incredibly delicious and refreshing. Their unique flavors would be perfect for cocktails. Who needs sugary sodas when you can get your hands on these waters and teas?
We’ve tried this Japanese company’s other crunchy cookie/wafer snacks before, but those cute Choco Mushrooms above were too fun not to share!
We had the pleasure of being “booth neighbors” with this awesome company and even scored some full samples from the owner, Bill, at the end of the show. This chocolate is some of the creamiest we’ve ever tasted. And it’s PRETTY! Each bar is beautifully swirled with color. Their white chocolate cake batter flavor was the newest addition released at the show.
You’ve all heard of this San Francisco based company, but the samples we tried from their booth (which was close to ours this year!) were delicious. Check out the fun chocolate dipped pretzel sticks above!
This booth caught our eye as it was completed dedicated to the Hatch Chili, which isn’t necessarily an ingredient or flavor we’re seeing taking over the foodie world right now. But, it certainly does have its popularity – especially in Texas – and our Saucy Mama Hatch Chili Mustard is one that our customers are loving, too! Check out more pictures from this booth below.
And last, but not least, here are the Specialty Food Association’s top five trends from the show:
1) Sriracha’s Homecoming: everything Sriracha flavored…from popcorn to chocolates to jams!
2) Crunch Time: chips made from anything and everything! We’re talking pasta, quinoa and more…
3) Low-Sugar Sips: beverages with less sugar, including almond milk and semi-sweet cola.
4) Commit to Mint: this flavor is taking center stage in lots of products, including sodas, frozen pops and water.
5) Condiments Dressed Up (our favorite!): basically condiment classics with fancy twists, like herb mayonnaise and truffle ketchup. Of course, we feel like we’ve been “dressed up” for years…so maybe that makes us special
Happy short-week, lovely Saucies! Have we mentioned lately how thankful we are for all of you? Well, we are…and always will be!
Last week we shared our highlights from our trip to the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, and this week, we’ll begin sharing Zesuous‘ awesome Saucy Mama recipes that she made both for WFC and just for fun. These mini grilled cheeses, featuring our Dijon mustard, received 5th place in the category and are super simple, yet delicious. We highly recommend giving them a try! Also, check out our highlight video below of Christie’s time in the sandwich cooking arena. More Zestuous recipes coming soon!
Truffled Fonteenies with Saucy Mama Dijon Mustard
1 loaf ciabatta bread
6-8 ozs. Fontina cheese
1 preserved black truffle
¼ cup Saucy Mama Dijon Mustard
4 tablespoons butter
½ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley
Slice the ciabatta into 1/2-inch thick slices. Using a 1-inch circle cutter, cut the slices into circles.
Slice the cheese into 1/8-inch thick slices. Use the circle cutter to make circles of cheese; you’ll need 1 circle of cheese per 2 circles of bread.
Zest half a truffle into a small bowl. Stir in the mustard. Spread mustard onto each circle of ciabatta.
Add a circle of cheese and sandwich ciabatta together mustard sides in.
Zest the remaining truffle into another bowl. Stir in Parmesan cheese and parsley.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Add 8 sandwiches. Cook covered for 2 minutes. Flip. Cook until golden. Remove to a sheet pan.
Season with salt and cover. Add more butter to the pan and continue cooking all of the sandwiches.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the sandwiches and drizzle very lightly with truffle oil. Serve warm.
