  • The Ultimate Hot Sauce Authority: A Great Cookbook!

    By MG French
    This book is a true education as well as a handy resource, especially the Scoville scale. It covers heat index levels as well as flavors such as fruity, sweet, mild, hot, smoky, earthy, herbal, and/or nutty. I'm truly impressed with the quick and easy recipes as well as its in-depth processes that include fermentation. There are some great ideas like mixing hot sauces with condiments or adding it to softened butter to add spice to whatever you're cooking.
  • Excellent resource for making hot sauces!

    By Newdawn78
    Thank you. This is the best go-to reference book I have found on making hot sauces and chilis. This will save my household plenty of money. The hot sauces seem to go on everything that I make in my house. I love the tips they give in this book. Things that should be common sense but people wouldn't think of. Now off to the grocery store.
  • Great recipes!

    By CarolynEliza
    I've been wanting to try and make homemade hot sauce, and this is the only book I think I'll need! It contains a great intro to read before you get started, complete with a helpful scoville unit chart and descriptions of the various chiles. The chapters are broken down by region - Latin America, Louisiana, Asia, the Caribbean and "Beyond". I can't wait to make a homemade version of Frank's and sriracha, but there are lots of more adventurous recipes as well. My only complaint is that there aren't any pictures.
  • Informative text and tasty recipes

    By sparklyreviewergirl
    For all things salsa/hot sauce related The Hot Sauce Cookbook is a fun resource. I love that in addition to sauce recipes, it also gives you some recipes to use the sauces in. The book gives a great overview of all the different peppers you will need, but it would be nice if the text came with images to help in your search through the produce section for the right ingredients. If you love spicy food, it is still a solid cookbook with some great recipes.

  • You’ll never look at hotsauce the same way again!

    By TheDouggernaut
    This might be the only time I’ve ever claimed a cookbook was informative in more than just a culinary sense! I’m a little uncultured (read: ignorant) when it comes to the foods of some places around the world so it was a delight to read a book that took such an even view of hot sauces from all over. Even if you think you know everything about international cuisine and spiciness, I’d still recommend giving this cookbook a read, if not to just have one place you can find a way to add whatever kind of flavor of spiciness you need to your day.
  • Great cookbook!
