Local boy makes good salsa by Barbara L. Steinberg
Hey Midtown locavores! This is the real deal, Gardner Gourmet Roasted Salsa. Made by Midtown resident, Sash Gardner. Made in Midtown at Lulu's Kitchen at 16th and G streets. Sold in Midtown at Pacific Market at 25th and P streets and also at PS Market at 28th and T streets.
I met Sash Gardner at Feeding Crane Farm's open house at the newly established commercial Lulu's Kitchen -- previously Steel Magnolia. And was amazed to hear the story of this young state worker gone roasted salsa maker! Three levels of heat: mild, medium and hot. I was able to sample mild and medium. A little kick even for me who loves spice! So for the weak of taste bud, you might want to venture out with the mild.
So Midtown and all of Sacramento, get out there and support a really small business. A really Made in California USA business! Other locations include Corti Bros, Compton's and Taylor's!
