Michelle and her daughter Audra have worked side-by-side for the past 12 years running their outdoor food business, Spice of Life Catering. Their specialties include linguica sausage sandwiches with grilled onions and meatball subs served with homemade garlic sauce. The garlic sauce soon made its way to various other food items including nachos, chicken teriyaki rice bowls, even the corn chips served with sandwich meals. Almost immediately customers started asking, “what is that stuff?"..."what is that garlic stuff?" Some even brought small containers, hoping to purchase a little to take home. Michelle joked with her daughter, "maybe we should bottle it? Finally, at the San Benito County Fair a customer approached the food booth with a gallon container asking if she could purchase what they had left of their garlic sauce. Michelle threw her arms in the air and said, "that's it, we're doing it!" Several recipe revisions later (to get it just right) That Garlic Stuff was born and the rest is history!
That Garlic Stuff is available in the original flavor as well as a spicy version.
