The Story Behind Rocks, Sticks & Hell…

During the Spring of 2014, little did anyone realize that an obscure request, at a ridiculous hour of the night would lead to the creation of Rocks, Sticks & Hell, LLC. An abridged recount of that evening follows.

It was midnight in a quaint house in central Florida....

Chef Bob's Kristin: “I want chocolate cake... with homemade frosting.... please.”

Chef Bob:“Do we have the ingredients for frosting, honey?”

Chef Bob's Kristin:“We have these chocolate bars from last Christmas, mint chocolate cocoa powder, and half a sea salt almond chocolate bar... will that work??”

Chef Bob:“How about corn syrup?”

Chef Bob's Kristin:“Ummm.. no, I can’t have that.. can you use honey, or agave...?”

Chef Bob:“Heavy cream?”

Chef Bob's Kristin:“No. I have buttermilk though! And there's only two eggs... Can you make up the difference with six quail eggs for the cake?”

These ingredients, now affectionately referred to as rocks, sticks and hell, were transformed that night, into a gluten free chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. From seemingly nothing, something was created--a challenge I excitedly tackled. Chocolate frosting has few ingredients, and is not a complex process, but the opportunity to use unusual or odd ingredients, which were on hand at that moment was thrilling, intriguing, perplexing, and delightfully fun.
This was the genesis for ROCKS, STICKS & HELL, and the basis for the Chef Bob Aungst brand. In the end, it's all a transformation process, turning nothing into something...

Bon Appétit!
