Products : Dave's Gourmet

Dave Hirschkop is the founder and creative force behind Dave’s Gourmet. The products reflect his love of delicious food, wholesome ingredients, and innovative ideas.

Dave's Gourmet started an off-beat taqueria in Maryland called Burrito Madness. They created the “hottest hot sauce in the universe” as a way to control unruly drunk patrons. However, it ended up doing the opposite. Customers loved it. Dave bottled the insanely hot sauce and brought it to the National Fiery Food Show. They banned it for being too hot - the first and only hot sauce to achieve this status.

When looking at the sea of similar red pasta sauces in the supermarket, Dave became determined to design innovative pasta sauces using the best tasting and highest quality ingredients he could find. His creations earned him more than seventeen prestigious Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation awards, including “best in category” four times.
