I attended the press preview of the 1st Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo last night at Jimmy’s No. 43 restaurant, where I watched a panel of judges suffer through a whopping twelve categories of hot sauces, with flavors ranging from fiery and fruity to scorching scotch bonnet. While I greatly doubt my ability to savor over 100 sauces in one sitting, I look forward to sampling these products at my leisure in my home kitchen, with a number of safety drinks handy! 

Mark your calendars for April 20-21, 2013, where the NYC Hot Sauce Expo sets up in Brooklyn, New York’s East River State Park, featuring eating contests, hot sauce awards, fire eaters and other capsaicin-oriented treats!
