The #HotNJ judging will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Chilangos in Highlands, from 2pm. The public is welcome to attend, as some of the producers will be there to offer samplings.
The format will be a blind tasting, and categories will include Best Hot Sauce, Best Medium/Mild Sauce and Best Flavor.
Eligible for the competition are any hot sauces crafted in NJ. The sauces in the competition include: Heartbreaking Dawns, Born to Hula, Hot Sauce 4 Good, Krazy Flav, Hank Sauce and Blair’s. Below you can read detailed reviews of some of these producers:
The panel will consist of a number of food bloggers, restaurateurs and media personalities. The results, with comments from the panelists, will be made public shortly after the judging. A special announcement of the winners will also be made during the Jersey Shore Biz Fest (April 15 at the Sheraton Eatontown).
