NW Elixirs Verde Hott Sauce #2
- THE STORY
A mild green chile sauce with tremendous depth of flavor.
Chef Andrew Garrett of Portland's NW Elixirs hand roasts poblano and serrano peppers with tomatillos, then blends and sieves them until smooth. Next, he adds fresh cilantro, spices and agave nectar - just enough to cool the heat of the peppers. The result is a milder hot sauce with fresh, bright flavors. Ideal with poultry or fish (drizzle liberally over fish tacos!), it also adds a savory touch to salad dressings and marinades.
NW Elixirs is the collaboration of a Chef and a waiter who love a meal with deep flavors, and good friends.
The Craftsman: Published and award-winning, Chef Andrew Garrett, has a passion for food and life that shines through in his personality. He acquired an appreciation for all things local and historically rich while growing up in Sonoma, California. During his Army service in Germany, Andrew ate his way through France and Tuscany; where he felt right at home with cuisines that revolved around wines, cheese, foraging, and butchery. Chef Garrett's passion for every ingredient he uses is a key part of his goal to bring you, the consumer, the best possible recipes and sauces. He strives to inspire anyone with a passion for great food.
The Entrepreneur: Mitch Miller has spent nearly 10 years in the food service industry funding his education and travel experiences. After 4 years of living and traveling in China and Southeast Asia, he returned to his hometown of Portland, with a deep appreciation and love of unique food. Mitch and Andrew met in 2010 in a restaurant kitchen in NW Portland where they struck an immediate friendship, and began working on NW Elixirs. The rest as they say "is history".
