FAPC Member Spotlight: Intensity Academy Gourmet & Hot Sauce Company
|March 23, 2011||Posted by admin under FAPC|
Do you enjoy adding a little bit of heat to what your dishes? If so, Intensity Academy Hot Sauces might be just the thing to try. It may sound a little different, but their most popular hot sauce is made from carrots. Yes, you read that right, carrots! Owner and creator, Michele Northrup told us a little background on how she came up with the idea:
Intensity Academy was created from inspiration in the garden at my children’s school. The vegetable of the week was carrots and we all took a basket of carrots home & were supposed to come up with something unique that the students had not tried before. I came up with a kickin’ carrot hot sauce and brought it in. the students loved it, the staff loved it, they said “Ms. Michele, you need to bottle this!” I thought….”Yeah, right”, but I started to look in the stores & realized there was nothing similar that was all natural. I created a single batch of sauce to start with & figured WORSE case scenario if it didn’t work out everyone I knew would get hot sauce for the Holidays! Now, three years later we are getting SAUCY with thousands of fans all over the world!
She has all sorts of types of hot sauces, marinades, ketchups, BBQ sauces and grilling sauces. You can check out the product line up here. What makes her product even more unique is all of the sauces are infused with tea.
Intensity Academy has been in business for 3 years and has won over 40 national awards in just that short period of time.
And because Intensity Academy is just awesome, they sent us a Saucy Pack to give away! This is a 4 pack of sauces including Chai Chipotle Chup (tea infused spicy ketchup), Chai Chipotle Q’ (tea infused BBQ sauce), Green Tea Gourmet (green tea infused oriental sauces) and Chai Tahi Teriyaki. If you enjoy trying different things when you cook, this is the sauce to get!
