In only the third time in its 18-year history, The Association for Dressings and Sauces awarded both Dressing of the Year and Sauce of the Year to one member, New Jersey-based Chelten House Products. Chelten House’s Orange Miso Dressing and Sweet Chili Korean Style BBQ Sauce were the winning entries, with the awards presented at the ADS Annual Meeting held October 13-15 at the Westin Denver in Denver. This marks the second time Chelten House took home both honors and the fifth time winning Sauce of the Year.
“On behalf of the entire team, including our suppliers, culinary development, technical services, operations and marketing, we are very proud and honored to accept these awards,” said Jason Dabrow, chief operating officer (COO) of Chelten House Products, Inc.
A certified-organic product, Chelten House’s Orange Miso Dressing combines soybean oil, orange juice, tamari sauce, ginger puree, white vinegar and miso with orange peel, cilantro, roasted garlic, onions and other ingredients, flavors and spices.
The company’s Sweet Chili Korean Style BBQ Sauce combines apple cider vinegar and red miso with the tastes of red chili peppers, cayenne peppers and garlic, along with other ingredients, flavors and spices.
The Dressing of the Year and Sauce of the Year Awards are presented by ADS to recognize and celebrate truly innovative and delicious products. Nominations for the awards were received from ADS members and were then voted on by members via blind taste tests at the ADS April 29-May 1, 2018 Technical Meeting in Charlotte. ADS members voted for the dressing and sauce deemed to have the best overall taste.
