Description: As you gaze longingly at the hot sauces in your supermarket, do you ever wonder which one would best complement shrimp scampi? Do you ask yourself what makes a habanero sauce any different from one with poblanos? Do you know why something so hot can make you feel so good? Find the answers to these questions and more in A Field Guide to Hot Sauces! 

Author Todd Kaderabek, who has had a lifelong love affair with hot sauce, has compiled a comprehensive and entertaining tasting tour of 102 blazing brews. In the spirit of a wine-taster, Kaderabek reviews each sauce's flavor, lists its ingredients, scores its heat level, and then adds his own personal perspective. 

Each hot sauce bottle is brought to life with spirited and color-mad drawings by Christi Teasley. The book also features a glossary of the 15 most commonly used hot sauce peppers, as well as 24 lively asides on pertinent pepper points, such as how to grow your own hot peppers, and how to cool off your palate when you've had too much of a good thing. There's even a list of mail-order companies that sell hot sauces.
