Event description

Description

Join BHS as we tackle some burning questions about spicy food! How did spiciness find its way into America’s food lexicon? How are hot sauce makers looking to turn up the heat on adventurous eaters? Why do we do this to ourselves? Historic gastronomist Sarah Lohman, hot sauce creator Erica Diehl of Brooklyn’s own Queen Majesty Hot Sauce, and “Smokin’” Ed Currie, owner of Puckerbutt Farms and cultivator of the world’s hottest peppers, discuss in a conversation moderated by Steve Seabury of High River Sauces and the NYC Hot Sauce Expo.
