One sauce can make a big difference in spicing up a menu. In Eagan, Minnesota, Union 32 Craft House’s Kitchen Manger, Carl Troje, recently sat down during a rare lull in service to talk about how Marzetti’s Bold Blends™ Sriracha Bourbon has become a standard ingredient in his craft brewhouse’s menu.
The restaurant bills itself as a “cool hangout with a patio, pub grub and self-serve taps of local craft beers, including house brews.” But it’s not just run-of-the-mill pub grub, thanks in part to Troje’s dedication to finding the highest quality ingredients for his dishes. Like many other chefs and operators, he’s a strong proponent of clean label sauces at his restaurant, so Bold Blends™ sauces are a perfect fit in his kitchen.
“I use the Sriracha Bourbon sauce in wings, wraps, sandwiches and all kinds of stuff,” he says. “I think it’s the best sauce in the world, and I go through a lot of it.” He also notes that the price point of Marzetti Bold Blends™ is much more affordable than competitive sauces. “It’s so much cheaper, and it’s so much better,” he says.
The wing advantage
Troje notes that Bourbon Sriracha chicken wings are one of the top-selling varieties in his operation. He feels that Bold Blends are superior to other brands. “In other sauces, you can tell they use a lot of ketchup, corn syrup and other sugary fillers, which can be overly gelatinous,” he says. “Those aren’t in the Marzetti product, so it heats up nicely and coats well. You’re able to toss the wings more easily.”
“I’m looking for taste, quality and uniqueness, and that’s why I use Bold Blends,” he says.
