The Emmy, James Beard, and Critics' Choice Award-Winning Series and Hot Sauce Experts Invite Fans to Spice Up Their Pantries with Top Chef-Inspired Sauces
NEW YORK - MARCH 2, 2023 - Bravo's Top Chef has teamed up with the hot sauce aficionados at HEATONIST to create a trio of sauces to celebrate the milestone 20th season of the culinary competition series. Launched today, the Bravo's Top Chef x HEATONIST sauces were developed with guidance from Top Chef Season 12 winner, Mei Lin, and are packed with flavor so that fans can create winning dishes in their own kitchens.
"Fans of Bravo's Top Chef have always wanted to bring some of the show's magic into their own kitchens, and by teaming with hot sauce innovators HEATONIST and season 12 winner Mei Lin, we found the perfect partnership to spice up the palates of our dedicated viewers," said Shalina Mansharamani, Vice President, Brand Marketing, NBCUniversal. "This hot sauce collaboration raises the heat on what surely will be a great 20th season."
The Bravo's Top Chef x HEATONIST hot sauces are available in the following three bold flavors:
· Herbs Hot Sauce (5 fl. oz.) - a vibrant mix of green herbs, including parsley, cilantro and rosemary, blended with citrus and mild jalapeño to brighten any meal. Best used as a dressing, marinade or condiment.
· Peppercorn Hot Sauce (5 fl. oz.) - a floral blend of peppercorns, zingy ginger and fruity habanero for just-right heat. Add to sauces, marinades and even cocktails.
· Garlic Hot Sauce (5 fl. oz.) - an umami bomb of savory garlic and jalapeño peppers that finishes with seductive, slow-building heat from ghost pepper. Use as a sandwich spread, marinade or condiment.
"Top Chef has been one of the most respected shows on TV since it first premiered, so we couldn't have been more excited when NBCUniversal approached HEATONIST about a hot sauce collaboration for the show's 20th season," said Noah Chaimberg, CEO and Founder of HEATONIST. "Keeping culinary enthusiasts in mind, we worked with NBCUniversal and Mei Lin to ensure that the hot sauces reflected ingredients used by professional chefs across the globe. We're honored to be able to bring this trio of Bravo's Top Chef x HEATONIST sauces to life, and know that Top Chef fans will be excited to have a taste of the show in their kitchens."
