Hell's Kitchen Contestant Robyn Almodovar Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Mass-Produce Her Goods
Next up, her tomato jam -- perfect for spreading on crackers with a bit of cheese. Like the hot sauce, it's a condiment that can be used to flavor and enhance a number of dishes or home-cooked meals.
Last, but certainly not least: Almodovar's mushroom risotto balls, hands down her truck's most popular menu item that comes from a recipe that began almost by accident. Not wanting some leftover risotto to go to waste, she tossed it together with some porcini mushrooms, spices and a dash of parmesan cheese, and the rest is history.
However, they're also the inspiration behind her Kickstarter project. According to Almodovar, the idea for starting Incredible Creations began when a customer asked how she could order more mushroom risotto balls -- like, a whole lot more.
"A lightbulb went off and I thought, 'Why not make these available to everyone?'" she said.
To get the project off the ground Almodovar has established a goal of $5,000, which she hopes to reach by Wednesday, February 6. Funds pledged for this project will help with the manufacturing, label design and marketing needed to get Incredible Creations products into stores like Publix and Whole Foods.
There are plans for more products, of course, including her meatballs, based off a family recipe. One thing every Incredible Creation will have in common, however:
"Everything is going to be like a party in your mouth!"&
