The Bronx Hot Sauce is a partnership between GrowNYC, Chef King Phojanakong and Small Axe Peppers. This collaboration was forged from the shared belief that The Bronx is a wonderful place capable of producing wonderful things. The sauce is no exception.

The recipe from Chef King, who spent his formative years at The Bronx High School of Science, calls for serrano peppers because they grow well in the City’s climate.

In the spring of 2014, Small Axe donated 3,500 serrano pepper plants to GrowNYC. The plants were distributed to community gardens throughout the Bronx that GrowNYC supports. We then offered to buy back the peppers for a premium price at harvest time in the fall. This buy-back model keeps production local, while supporting the community gardens. Additionally, Small Axe will contribute a majority of the profits from hot sauce sales to programs that assist low-income communities in the Bronx and throughout the City.

Of course, the sauce tastes delicious, as you’d expect from its Bronx roots. The high quality and great taste help change the meaning of “The Bronx is Burning” from decidedly negative to decidedly positive. We hope you share our affirmation in the resurgence of the Bronx.

Enjoy!
