This is World Calendar for Hot Sauce and Chii Festivals. We've learned about and added many hot sauces festivals to our calendar from people reaching out, so please comment below if we are missing any. Have fun attending!
Perfecting a hot sauce recipe is challenging! I’d actually say it’s almost impossible since everyone has their own hot sauce preferences and ingredients may vary in taste and heat with each batch. So my advice is to avoid analysis paralysis, turn on the burner, weigh and record all ingredients, make a sauce and then tweak the recipe from there.
I wrote this blog post knowing that this question could start some heated debates. However, it's really a question that should be embraced and make us feel fortunate for all the amazing hot sauce and food combinations out there.
For some people like me, it's always oyster season, but for most people the arrival of warm weather means oyster time has arrived. There's nothing like sitting at an oceanside restaurant on a warm summer day and having some fresh oysters (with perhaps a few adult beverages too!). There are many popular toppings to put on oysters like lemon, horseradish, or a cocktail sauce. Among chili-heads the best topping for oysters is of course.... Hot Sauce! Here a few different types of Hot Sauces that pair really well with oysters.
This past weekend an influx of chilliheads hot sauce explorers entered the Brooklyn Expo Center to attend the Fourth Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo, put on by Steve Seabury of High River Sauces. The event was a huge success for Steve with 45+ vendors and the 1000+ attendees. The beautiful mid 70 degree sunny day, and selection of Craft Beers and oysters was the cherry on top.
