Dirk (Sarah’s Husband) was excellent at helping us dive into their world of hot sauce. Dirk shared a lot of great stories not only about their experiences in the hot sauce community and how they source all their ingredients but also stories about his family and how and why they decided to get into the world of hot sauce making. All their hot sauces were truly unique and had combinations of ingredients I had never even thought about before. It truly was an excellent and a one-of-a-kind experience and I would definitely do again when I’m in Portland again. If you are debating about doing these AirBnB experience debate no longer and book as fast as you can.

This was by far the best experience we’ve had in Portland! My son is a college student at PSU and was celebrating his birthday, so I traveled from out of state to spend the day with him. When Dirk and Sarah discovered that it was my son’s birthday they prepared an extra special experience for us. Dork was so incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Their sauces are absolutely amazing! I can’t say enough good things about this experience! We will definitely be scheduling more of their experiences!

Great experience! Possibly the highlight of our week in the area. So much flavour, care & passion for each of the sauces. If we were in pdx longer I’d want to take the hot sauce making class. Able to enjoy our fill of each of the many sauces, compare and combine. As an extra bonus learned about some interesting podcasts from the host to look into. Thank you!

This was such a treat! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. Dirk was extremely friendly and welcoming, and it was lovely being able to sit down and chat with him while sampling their excellent sauces (they're SO unbelievably good)! We couldn't help but purchase 5 bottles for ourselves! It's so incredible that such an amazing product comes from such a tiny crew. I would 100% recommend this experience (and their sauce!) to any of my friends and family.
