My name is Jeff Salem and I live in Brampton, Ontario and I am a hot sauce maker and a professional musician. I have toured and performed in over 70 countries sharing my passion of music as well as on the search for making a perfect hot sauce. The eagerness to start making hot sauce was fueled by all the frustration I would have dinning in many restaurants on tour and requesting hot sauces for dinner. Most of the hot sauces I would receive were filled with chemicals, too much water, sugar and lots of sodium. I thought to myself there has to be a solution. Why can’t there be a hot sauce where we compliment the pepper with mostly just fruits and vegetables. That’s were my voyage and mission began.
In my travels I have gained knowledge to create a great line of hot sauces that combines wonderful flavours and just the right amount of heat.
With my name being Salem, the theme around my sauces has a haunting look and titles. I only use fresh natural ingredients and prepare everything at Rootham's Gourmet located in Guelph, ON.
All my sauces are Gluten Free, All Natural, No Preservatives, Low Sodium, Low Sugar, Nut & Dairy Free.
