sauce scientist & flavor curator
A FATHER, A SON,
AND A LOT OF TIME.
It all began when owner Jacob Cutino’s Step-Father had a secret, killer habanero sauce. For years he kept the recipe to himself, and only trial and error and Jacobs’ persistence allowed him to recreate his own version. In 2015, Homeboy’s hot sauce was released in small batches in farmer’s markets and small shops. But once the sauces were out, flavor spread across tongues everywhere.
BUT WHERE’S OUR HOMEBOY???
Jacob Cutino was the original homeboy, and he’s still here, large, and in charge. Homeboys was the beginning. We made it for our homies and sold it guerrilla style. As our reputation spread we were thrilled by our success, all thanks to our amazing fans. But, we wanted to grow and expand our brand in order to launch new varieties and products. In 2017, as luck would have it, we linked up with renowned chef and pizza guru Chris Bianco. Chris was a longtime fan of our products, and when great minds collide, brilliance happens. Cutino Sauce Co. is a partnership with Bianco, and the collaboration will allow us to bring more great flavors to a larger audience. It’s not easy putting this much flavor in these little bottles.
little bottles, big flavor
That’s right…We pack a whole lot of flavor into these little bottles. It’s not enough to make something to simply scorch your tongue. We’re more interested in creating gourmet, artisanal sauces to ignite your taste buds, enhance your recipes and push the boundaries of sauces.
