Hot and Spicy: Cultural Cuisine
Many Asian and Caribbean islands have hot sauces that change food from simplicity to fire-breathing in flavor. Each area or island has its own unique “special sauce” – resulting in a fiery competition.
The term “hot sauce” refers to something that is made from spicy ingredients. These ingredients may include peppers – with “hot sauces” ranging in “heat” from slightly noticeable to overwhelming and unbearable to eat more than a few pieces.
BBC Travel recently did an article about hot sauces in the Caribbean region. By pointing out the one hot sauce that was titled “the world’s hottest sauce,” your mouth will definitely feel a whirlwind of cultural experiences through one simple taste.
