For the past few months, our lives at Homeroom have been consumed with working on our new project, Homeroom to-go, which will be opening up later this year just a block away from the restaurant. We’re moving all of our take-out there, and we’ll also sell cool things like beer and wine to go, full pies, jars of salad dressing, and other tasty treats. We’ll also have a little condiment corner where you’ll find an awesome selection of hot sauces and other toppings that are delicious on mac and cheese.
Our search special products for Homeroom To-Go led us to SOSU – a Bay Area local and small-batch maker of condiments and hot sauces. They are currently doing a Kickstarter campaign to get their Whiskey Barrel-Aged Sriracha to market. When they contacted us about doing a special event with them around our sriracha mac, we were intrigued. But what really convinced us was after we tasted their sriracha in our mac and cheese. We were blown away, and immediately said yes.
So for ONE NIGHT ONLY, on February 27th from 5:30 til 10, we’ll be making ALL of our sriracha macs with Sosu’s Barrel-Aged Sriracha. Aged in whiskey barrels and naturally fermented with chilis and a touch of brown sugar, this sriracha is smoky, fiery, and delicious. This is sriracha for all of you who think you don’t like sriracha.
The owner of Sosu, Lisa, will also be at the restaurant to give you samples of her magical sauce.
For all you sriracha-lovers out there, we thought it would be a fun event to try something new, and a cool way to support a new business whose product we’ll be excited to carry at Homeroom To-Go.
You can contribute to Lisa’s Kickstarter campaign to get a jar to a barrel of the Barrel-Aged Sriracha. Let’s help her find a permanent home and bring to market a delicious product!
Hope to see you on thursday!
