What an awesome week this has been for our family! My uncle took 1st PLACE and Best of Show for his green chile stew at the 2017 New Mexico State Fair at Expo New Mexico! Today, we were notified that New Mexico State Fair attendees have spoken, and the 2017 Battle of the Salsas winner has been decided. Santa Fe Seasons brand Chimayo Red Salsa took 1st PLACE!!!!!
Battle of the Salsas is an annual contest open to all New Mexico-made, commercially-produced salsas available for sale in the New Mexico Country Store. Located in the Agriculture Building on the fairgrounds, the Country Store was created 25 years ago as a place for people to discover New Mexico foods such as salsas and other chile products, spice mixes, baked goods, jams and jellies, candies, fresh produce, nuts, honey, teas, and more.
WE ARE THRILLED!!!
When Anna and Greg Shawver moved from New Mexico to the Pacific Northwest in the mid 1980's they were left with a deep longing for everything they had taken for granted in their home state. Missing the music, dance, fiestas, food and family gatherings and their favorite New Mexican foods that were obviously not available in the Pacific Northwest. Unless they packed the indigenous Chile to New Mexico themselves and took them after a visit or had them shipped after the fall harvest, they had to do without.
After returning to New Mexico in 1996, the entrepreneurial spirit emerged and they longed to do something that brought together all the things that were a part of who they were: culture, food, music, traditional recipes and la cocina (the kitchen where my family has gathered for many years). The business and its products began to come together as I found out that I descended from a lineage of entrepreneurs and simple townspeople who understood hospitality and good food. The products and recipes were born of a multicultural energy and spirit that took root in New Mexico in the early 1500's. Some are derived from traditional recipes to which they have added more inventive fare. They are committed to creating the finest, award-winning gourmet food products. In order to ensure the high quality and consistency of all of the Santa Fe seasons products, they are still made in small batches.
Santa Fe Season's products have found a place at the tables of many fine resorts and restaurants, gourmet, gift, gallery and grocers throughout the US and in Germany. They have combined equal parts imagination and history with some unique high quality ingredients to create an incredible, edible culinary experience. Anna and Greg believe the soul of cooking is about enjoying life and celebrating with friends and family. From their family to yours, Bien venidos y esperamos que usted nos visitará otra vez. (Welcome! I hope you will visit us again and often.)
