One of our favorite things to do is take a person with an exceptional palate and make them eat or drink what us plebes actually buy day-to-day. We do it for two reasons. First, we like to torture people. Two, it helps us know which product to buy the next time we’re at the grocery store. So to find the best tomato sauce at the supermarket, we went to acclaimed Italian chef Steve Samson of Sotto and the soon-to-open Rossoblu in Los Angeles and made him eat Ragu, Rao’s, Trader Giotto’s, Prego and Guy Fieri’s Spicy Tomato. We would have called this the “Marinara Taste Test” but then the authenticity police may have come after us for including Fieri’s and thus implying it may be marinara. Anyway, check out the video to see which sauce thinks you should buy the next time you’re at the store.
