Looking for a new flavor or a new way of spicing up your life? Well, look no further. High River Sauces, the award winning Hot Sauce Company started by music industry veteran and Mosh Potatoes Cookbook (Simon & Schuster) author Steve Seabury is proud to announce the Top Fuel Verde Sauce in collaboration with Stephen Pearcy of the multi-platinum selling band RATT and Chef Chris Santos of the Food Network’s highest rated show, “Chopped.”
“When I was finalizing the concept of the Mosh Potatoes Cookbook I was introduced to fellow Metal Head and food junkie Chef Chris Santos. We became instant friends and we discussed the possibility of one day working together,” Seabury tells us about how the collaboration got started. “Stephen Pearcy and I were discussing about conjuring up a hot sauce together and when I found out that Santos was a big fan of RATT I knew it was a sign from the Heavy Metal Heavens that we all work together.”
“I love heating up all my foods. From eggs for breakfast, to Mexican, hamburgers, chili, you name it, I love my hot sauce. I’ve been wanting to release my own hot sauce for some time now and with a blink of an eye, I’m talking to Steve from High River Sauces and fellow rocker and amazing chef Chris Santos about the Top Fuel Verde Sauce,” says Stephen Pearcy about his passion for fiery foods.
Chef Chris Santos is the co-owner of The Stanton Social Restaurant, Beauty & Essex Restaurant, and Lounge & Pawn Shop ~ which was recently named “The hottest new restaurant in America” by Zagat. Chris was also awarded the prestigious “Rising Star” award from Star Chefs Magazine for his work at The Stanton Social.
“Collaborating with Steve from High River Sauce and Stephen Pearcy has been such a ‘way cool’ experience. At the age of 14 my brother took me to see RATT for my first concert at the Providence Civic Center. That night changed my life, in the cheap seats, surrounded my 10,000 metal heads. Of the thousands of shows I’ve seen since ~ you don’t forget your first. So to be working with Stephen is pretty f**king cool,” adds Santos.
High River Sauces had the honor of wining 5 Hot Pepper Awards this past year including the top award of “Best Hot Sauce of 2011,” the “Best New Hot Sauce Company,” and the “Picasso Pepper Award” for the best label artwork. You can find other High River hot sauces on this year’s Metal Alliance Tour, The Country Throwdown Tour, The Vans Warped Tour and The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Slayer, Motorhead, Slipknot And Anthrax.
Top Fuel Verde Sauce will ignite your tastebuds with its garden fresh flavors and the perfect amount of heat. It’s an excellent choice for grilled steaks, chicken, fish, tacos and nachos. This sauce will enhance all of your favorite dishes ~ but be warned, it’s deliciously addictive and you won’t want to put it away!
