Why We’re Drizzling Hot Honey on Literally Everything
In the musical Wicked, the main characters Elpheba and Glinda say to each other, “because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” That’s how I feel about hot honey. This spicy-meets-sweet condiment hasn’t been on the market for very long, but in just over 10 years, it’s become super popular among spice lovers. The product was first introduced by Mike Kurtz, a former music industry professional turned pizza maker turned hot honey creator. While Kurtz was studying abroad in Brazil in college, he ate at a small pizzeria that served their pies with jars of honey infused with whole chile peppers.
In our last contest, we asked to see your new flavor combinations for an old classic— layer cake. We were blown away by the creativity of the submissions (especially our two finalists). This time around, we want to see that creativity channeled into a more savory pursuit: your best dish disguised as a sandwich!
We want to see a mash-up between your favorite knife-and-fork meal and the world's most perfect handheld food: the sandwich. Try a chicken cordon bleu torta, a chana masala pita wrap, a Korean BBQ French dip au jus (seriously, someone please do this)...just give the classics a twist!

16 Best Spring Soup Recipes (So Many Vegetables!)
