Chattanooga Chef Infuses Sauces With Love
In the kitchen of Chef Jernard Wells, it's not just the spices in the bowl that are important to the process. "We cook the way we feel and everything we cook is infused with our own synopsis of love," Wells says.
This reality show standout has a full plate of managing a restaurant, cooking for his NINE children and now filling grocery store shelves with his five signature sauces. Wells says, "Smokey Whiskey River consists of a signature sauce that I created about seven years ago by competing in Memphis in May competition. But the difference is I've incorporated Chattanooga Whiskey."
Smokey Whiskey River starts with a tomato puree. Add a little of this, and a little of that and soon the chemistry kicks in. "It's what we call a cold fusion process where we mix the ingredients up cold, bottle it, package it and what happens is as the raw ingredients are sitting in the bottles it allows the ingredients to enhance."
And when the 2,200 bottles this chef can crank out in three days hit the heat in your kitchen, that's when Wells says the magic begins.
Chef Jernard works alongside his wife who admits she was one of his biggest critics in the beginning. "This didn't happen overnight," Keena Wells says. "He worked for it, and he dreamed it and he made it happen."
A dream that you can now find at a grocery store near you. "It's pretty much like from our kitchen to your kitchen," the chef says.
