For me, I love a good balance of heat and flavor in a hot sauce. It is now one of my favorite condiments. I put hot sauces on practically everything!
That's why I am super excited for the First Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo this weekend. It is a two day festival featuring all the delicious hot sauces in North America. The weekend promises to be filled with live music, plenty of food, drinks and the best hot sauces. I was lucky to attend the media event at Jimmy No. 43 and tasted first hand some of the delicious hot sauces the expo has to offer. I also tasted some delicious food offering to go with the hot sauces. Jarlsberg cheese's in-house chef prepared some delightful grilled cheese sandwiches to mellow out our tasted buds. At the same time, a group of impressive judges were busy tasting over 75 hot sauces that are competing in various categories of the best hot sauces. Even though I love hot sauces, I was not envious of their job that evening; however I am eager to find out the winners. So don't miss the hottest event this weekend and come join in on the hotness!
