Meet SASS, it’s the name of Zena’s popular Sassy Almond-Sesame Sauce and her Sassy Peanut-Sesame Sauce.
Really looking forward in tasting and getting some of her Peanut sauce. (no soy) Wrong – Wheatless Soy there is Soy oil. She’ll be at the Farmer+Chef+Producer pop-up tasting event of Sept 29th, 2015.
Zena’s original culinary creations delighted legions of foodies far and wide. Even after selling, friends and former customers continued to request that Zena offer her wildly popular Sassy Almond-Sesame Sauce (SASS) and Sassy Peanut-Sesame Sauce (Peanut SASS) to the public; even providing her with empty salad dressing bottles to sterilize and fill.
At first, Zena stirred her cauldrons of SASS in a small commercial kitchen, labeling the donated containers with hand-lettered masking tape. Swiftly she graduated to pallets of fresh bottles and computer-printed labels, as SASS enjoyed steady word-of-mouth sales and fans of all ages. Children who are eating their veggies.
Attuned to growing health awareness, Zena carefully reformulated her vegan sauces to be gluten-free and low-glycemic, and added a “Hott!” version of each. Soon, the owner of a Santa Cruz-based natural grocery market chain expressed interest in SASS. There are more than seventy fine food purveyors carrying SASS, from Santa Barbara to Vancouver.
