Award-Winning Foodie Finishing Sauces – Top Mates

Top Mates Finishing SaucesMy husband and I both enjoy cooking and spending time in the kitchen together. With that said, we both lead very busy lives and don’t have 4 hours a day to be whipping up everything from scratch.

Recently we were introduced to several award-winning finishing sauces from Australia called Top Mates. These sauces are now available to U.S. consumers and make a great gift for any foodie on your holiday list!

Each sauce is artisan-crafted and slow-cooked, yielding powerful, full-bodied flavors never seen before right out of a jar. You can use them as a condiment, a marinade or during cooking. They are very versatile in their use and provide very unique flavor combinations.

For this review we received 3 complimentary jars of Top Mates to try out for all of you.

– Savory Cherry
– Savory Pineapple
– Apple and Mint

Top Mates Savory Pineapple Chicken

My husband is a BIG chicken eater. He loves chicken and we make it all kinds of different ways, so that it never gets boring. I would estimate that he will sit down and eat chicken at least 3 times every week.  Two weeks ago he baked some check and marinaded it in the Savory Pineapple Finishing Sauce and raved and raved about it. We marinaded our chicken in the sauce for about 2 hours and then just popped it all into the oven and baked for 45 minutes. Very flavorful and delicious!

Top Mates Savory Cherry Sauce

Last week my husband prepared another batch of chicken and this time around he used the Top Mates Savory Cherry Finishing Sauce. Again, he just marinaded the chicken in the sauce and baked it in the oven. Just like the first finishing sauce, this one is jam-packed with flavor! We had never had cherry flavored chicken before and oh my gosh…it’s delicious!

We received the Top Mates Apple and Mint Finishing Sauce which we haven’t used yet. We plan on picking up some fish from the market and using that sauce with the fish when we have company over for dinner next week. I bet it’s just as yummy as the first two!

You can buy Top Mates Finishing Sauces directly online. They make a great gift for the foodie (or) for yourself, I highly recommend you check out the Top Mates Club Package for that.
