Decadence Gourmet Review


Lee Mathis is the founder of a company, located in Grand Junction, Colorado. The company, Decadence Gourmet.

I am blessed that, I was sent two jars of their, Decadence Gourmet, Colorado style Southern chow chow. This is a product that is new and is making a name for itself.

This is a first taste for me in this type of product. Decadence Gourmet, offers this, Colorado style Southern Chow Chow, which is a traditional Southern relish infused with some heat.

The chow chow is a marriage of Southern and Southwest flavors. Which includes ingredients such as tomatillo's, ghost peppers, and so much more. Its heat, meets sweet!

Decadence Gourmets, Colorado style Southern chow chow, is very versatile. You can use it out of the jar as a condiment, add it into your baking mix's, and so much more. From a topping to cream cheese, to a taco, Decadence Gourmet Chow Chow has a true Southern taste.

This Chow Chow, from Decadence Gourmet has even won awards, so you know its good.

With that being said, let me share with you, how I used my jars of, Decadence Gourmet, Colorado style Southern Chow Chow.

With a breakfast bowl of chickpeas, and a sunny side up egg, I incorporated some of, Decadence Gourmet, chow chow. It gave the dish a sweet heat flavor. And every bite was delicious. With so little calories per serving, it’s a great condiment for everyone. Before you even open the jar, you can see inside all the tid bits of goodness. The cabbage, onions, hot peppers, seeds, red and green peppers, and bits of tomatillos.

The texture is a nice medium chunk and not to watery at all. The heat level is nice, sweet and lots of heat, that you will think back on for days. It is so good, you will want to leave it out so it can be enjoyed everyday.

No matter how you use it, you will enjoy the texture, and the heat.

To go with dinner I decided to try the, Decadence Gourmet, Colorado style Southern chow chow in some home made corn bread. It held up beautifully, and gave the corn bread a pleasant unique flavor. After tasting this chow chow, you will come up with a ton of recipes. And if you need help, there are a few on the website.

For dinner, I made some cod cakes, and topped them with the, Decadence Gourmet chow chow. Each bite you take you really get the flavor profile of Southern meeting Southwest. The mixture of different hot peppers, really is a party in your mouth. The chow chow, really brought a extraordinary flavor profile to my cod cakes.

 For the Cod Cakes:


6 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 ribs celery, minced

1 medium onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

2 russet potatoes (about 1 lb.) peeled and cut into small cubes

Kosher salt, to taste

1 lb. boneless, skinless salted cod filet

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. fresh dill

2 Tbsp. fresh minced parsley

1 egg, beaten

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter

and Decadence Gourmet Colorado style Southern chow chow for topping


Three days ahead, soak the cod in a large dish of cold water, covering it by 2 inches. Refrigerate for 2-3 days, changing the water three times a day. Drain and cut into pieces.


Make the fish cakes as follows: In a 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Cook until the celery, onions, and garlic are tender, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside in a large mixing basin.

In a 4 quart saucepan, combine the potatoes and fish, fill with salted water, and bring to a boil. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft and the cod flakes easily with a fork. Leave to cool for 10 minutes after draining. With a fork, mash flaked fish and potatoes and add to celery-onion combination.


Stir in the bread crumbs, mayonnaise, herbs, egg, and lemon juice to the cod-potato-onion combination. Form the ingredients into 8 equal parts and shape into cakes. Transfer to a plate or baking pan, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until hard.

In a pan over medium-high heat, cook the remaining oil and butter. Cook, turning once, until the fish cakes are golden brown. Serve with chowchow and lemon halves on the side.

Decadence Gourmet Chow Chow can be used to cover the whole cake.
