I can’t wait to eat, drink and be merry on New Year’s Eve and have been planning out my menu for the last day of 2016. It will be sure to include lots of local products, including a few bottles of Fat Cat Gourmet Foods awesome sauces. I have been a fan since 2012 when I first discovered this locally made product at Datz in South Tampa. With varieties such as: Chairman Meow’s Revenge, Purry-Purry Sauce, Papaya Pequin Passion, Cat in Heat, Mexican-Style Habanero, Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost, Strawberry Serrano (my personal favorite), Caribbean Curry, and my new favorite, Florida Sauce, it is safe to say I am hooked on all of them.
A few years ago, I entered a cocktail competition and used their Strawberry Serrano in my drink. I may not have won first place but it was a great experience and inspired me to create more cocktails using their sauces.
Made in Orlando, Fat Cat Sauces were conceived by husband and wife and gourmet aficionados, Eyal Goldshmid and Deborah Moskowitz. The name was inspired by their cat Tiggy, who happens to be be a “fat cat.” I love the name and love these sauces and want to share two bottles with a reader. My other favorite is one of their newer flavors, Bacon Sriracha, which I recently discovered after spotting a bottle at Parkesdale Market in Plant City. It is so good that I went through a bottle in just two weeks. I am giving away a bottle of Strawberry Serrano and Bacon Sriracha. To enter, click on the link below.
