We have 5 hot sauce reviews to unfold over the next 5 weeks from Fat Cat Foods. This is the first one, and this is a little description taken from their website:
“Our version of the classic South African condiment, Piri-Piri! Great with grilled meat and chicken, as a sandwich spread, on wings — heck, we even mix it with oil and vinegar and serve it as a salad dressing. A magical mix of caramelized onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes and pequin peppers — small red chilies that pack some powerful back heat.”
Our review team for these sauces is Ken Alexander, G and we welcome back the one and only Mer after a few months hiatus, but from his new state of Wisconsin. Welcome back Mer, and greetings to his new friends as well!
A little about Fat Cat Foods:
Fat Cat Gourmet Foods is the brainchild of husband and wife, Eyal Goldshmid and Deborah Moskowitz.
Deborah loves gardening. Eyal (pronounced “Ale,” like the beer) loves cooking and has been making homemade condiments for years. Every year, when Deborah’s garden reached harvest time, Eyal snatched what he could and started cooking. The rest, shall we say, is condiment history.
Today, those homegrown origins are still at the heart of our products. We make sure all of the sauces, condiments, relishes and more come from the freshest ingredients available. One taste, and we think you’ll agree that the extra work is worth it.
Deborah and Eyal have a cat named Tiggy (right). When they first got Tiggy, she was small and wiry. But she loved to eat, and little by little Tiggy grew and grew and grew….. Today, little Tiggy stands (or shall we say, sways) at just under 20 lbs. Not the fattest cat in the world, of course, but certainly large to be noticed when she decides to jump on your head at 5am and demand feeding. We also like the fact that Tiggy’s head has remained small over the years but the rest of her has ballooned exponentially. Yikes!
Anyway, one day Deborah and Eyal were watching TV and noticed Tiggy sprawled out over the floor in front of them. The cat’s stomach seemed to take up two-thirds of her actual size — so large that both of them marveled at it.
