For food & imagination. No preservatives, all purpose, no cholesterol, no fat, all natural, low calories. The Sauce short story. Thomas Sauce was born in a bowl in rural North Carolina back in the early thirties about midway between the mountains and the sea. It stayed within the taste buds of only one family and a few friends for several decades until a little boy named Thomas, who was on a branch of that tree, grew up and decided to bring the family secret out of the kitchen closet. And right now this consistent, excellent sauce rests in your capable hands. Thomas Sauce is distinctive because it never takes over when used directly on your food. And when you blend it in, it won't leave your best recipes heavy handed. So if you're a real gourmet, Thomas Sauce won't be beneath you. And if you're just an ordinary cook, Thomas Sauce won't be over your head. And that's about as level a story as we could ever tell. Even if we made one up.
