Organic BBQ Sauce

Most bbq sauces available in the big grocery store chains these days list high fructose corn syrup as a primary ingredient. If you're like me you'd probably like to keep your soda pop separate from your bbq sauce, and that's where Consorzio Organic BBQ Sauce can help.

This bbq sauce was developed by Michael Chiarello of PBS notoriety.

Consorzio products were originally created by renowned Napa Valley chef and author Michael Chiarello of the PBS TV cooking series "Season by Season." The fresh, bold flavors of Michael's Napa Valley home provide the perfect inspiration for his creativity.

Michael first developed flavored olive oils and sold them out of the back door of his restaurant. It wasn't long before local specialty stores became aware of these products and encouraged Michael and his partners to make them widely available.

So, Michael joined forces with a few partners to form Consorzio. (The word "consorzio" means "gathering" in Italian. It is a place where cooks and farmers gather to buy and sell fresh fruits and vegetables.) Their goal was to make all-natural, bold-flavored products that make cooking convenient. Today, Consorzio is the largest producer of flavored olive oil in the U.S., and the line also includes dressings, marinades, and barbecue sauces.
