A JAR TO THE RESCUE, POST-PANDEMIC
We’ve always been big foodies—whipping up crowd-wowing sauces for friends & experimenting away with them. It was really during the pandemic that our Sauce Up gears started churning. It was such an uncertain, scary time for everyone—and we saw how health became a priority for many of us.
Our thought: Why didn’t we bring to the market sauces that we knew would stun taste buds, but pack them with super clean, immunity-boosting ingredients that would actually care for everyone (while making meals-at-home so easily delicious)? Experiments, chef flavor mastering, and very willing testers later—that’s when Sauce Up happened.
With a decades+ background working as a chef at the likes of Gordon Ramsay, various Mario Batali restaurants, and Eleven Madison Park, David’s always had a serious food passion. Growing up surrounded by Asian culture—how couldn’t he inherit a love for chili & roasted nuts? (Hello, Chili-Crisp, Nut Crunch). But it was while working in Argentia that he became obsessed with a sublimely fresh, bursting with flavor sauce (aka, the Chimi-Green).
Chef David’s wife, Priscilla, also happened to be the perfect business partner. With a background as an NYC specialty food purchasing buyer, she’s the one reaching out, running test trials, marketing & Sauce Up educating. The couple are city dwellers, pup-parents (Mocha & Lucky <3), and love everything from art to dance, music, biking, yoga, and of course—delighting people with super nutritious sauces for a flavor revolution.
