Local Hot Sauce from right here in the Shenandoah Valley

Introducing a tasty hot sauce from Clark & Hopkins.  The Chesapeake Bay is not very spicy and finishes well on the back of your tongue.  We like it on egg sandwiches, hamburgers, french fries, pretty much anything you want to add a little zip too…..and I have a sample bottle of “Kerala” on my desk, which promises a lot more heat!  Brandon and Don and really fun folks who have put their heart and soul into this business.  Come support a Virginia Company with ties to Richmond and the Shenandoah Valley.  A few more nuggets of knowledge about Chef Brandon and Don:

Clark and Hopkins hot sauce brings flavors from across the globe right to your kitchen table. It all started on the tennis court, when Chef Brandon Clark was challenged by a tennis buddy of Indian descent, to create a hot sauce using the tastes of the Malabar Coast, a region rich in indigenous spicecraft that somehow lacked its own version of hot sauce. The result was so outstanding that Brandon’s tennis buddy Brijesh exclaimed, “This tastes like home!”

Brandon went on to experiment with flavors from Thailand, Laos, Mexico, Maine and further afield, in search of interesting new combinations. Over the years, with the help of tennis pal Don Hopkins and friends Mike and Kristin O’Connor, he refined the flavor, heat, and taste of these blends. Then in 2016, Clark and Hopkins was born.
