McIlhenny's Gold: How a Louisiana Family Built the Tabasco Empire
The story of the powerful McIlhennys of Louisiana, who turned hot peppers into a Tabasco fortune86% (11)
After the Civil War ended, Edmund McIlhenny, an ambitious and tenacious Louisiana businessman, found himself with few prospects. The South's economy in ruins and his millions of dollars in Confederacy currency worthless, he had no choice but to return with his wife, Mary, to her family home in Avery Island, a former sugar plantation destroyed by Union soldiers.
To McIlhenny's surprise, the hot peppers he had planted before being forced off the island had flourished. Desperate to start a new business, he chopped up the peppers, combined them with salt and vinegar, and produced the first batch of hot pepper sauce. Or so the story goes. He called the sauce Tabasco.
In this fascinating history, Jeffrey Rothfeder tells how, from a simple idea—the outgrowth of a handful of peppers planted on an isolated island on the Gulf of Mexico—a secretive family business emerged that would produce one of the best-known products in the world. In short order, McIlhenny's descendants would turn Tabasco into a gold mine and an icon of pop culture, making it as recognizable as far bigger brands such as Coca-Cola and Kleenex.
To this day, the McIlhenny Co., still run by a family of matchless characters who believe in a rigid code of family loyalty, clings to tradition and the old ways of doing business. Yet by fiercely protecting its beloved brand and refusing to sell out to big food conglomerates, this family business has run circles around its competitors, churning out annual revenues that have surpassed everyone's expectations.
A delectable and satisfying read for both Tabasco fans and business buffs, McIlhenny's Gold is the untold story of the continuing success of an eccentric, private company; a lively history of one of the most popular consumer products of all times; and an exploration of our desire to test the limits of human tolerance for fiery foods.
Red Hot Hippie
Happy bout this outfit...so why haven't I worn it yet??? Oh that damn skirt! How I love denim skirts, but they just don't love me...and they sure don't love white legs! :D I'm workin on my "tan" so hopefully soon I'll be able to dawn this hot outfit. I own a ton of black tops, so I'm always looking for new ways to spice them up...and I think I did just that with this outfit! All I did was put a red tank underneath, and added the strawberry necklace. Since the necklace has gold in it, I added gold earrings and bangles too. The best part of the outfit is the suede moccasin boots. Man those are the greatest boots in the world. They are so freakin comfortable and they go with everything in my closet pretty much. Why oh why didn't I buy like 5 pairs of them??? Well maybe because they weren't one of my lower priced pairs of shoes that I own. Last I added the vintage read straw bag...pulls it together nicely...and this outfit is ready for anything. What if I added leggings??? We might try it...but it might be too much.Wolf Blass 'Gold Label' Riesling 2004 (Australia)
Date: Feb 18, 2006 Location: GINI 2 @ Andrew's Place Wine Name: Gold Label Riesling Producer: Wolf Blass Region: Eden/Clare Valley, South Australia Vintage: 2004 Rank: 4 out of 4 Price: CAD$19.95 Clare Valley is a warm region paradoxically producing some stunning Rieslings. A highly aromatic nose of lime zest and spice with a light touch of minerality opens the door to this light-bodied offering. There is a cornucopia of treasures in the flavour profile (tangy citrus, spiced stone fruit and Granny Smith apples) while the finish delivers an uninterrupted stream of the same. Would pair well with a creamy cheese, like Brie. (winecurrent.com)
