The Hot Sauce Bible (1996 Edition)

The Hot Sauce Bible (1996 Edition)

I just picked this bit of news up from Scott Roberts Blog, if you have not got or seen  a copy of the original Hot Sauce Bible, then this used to be the best guide to the US chilli market, it covered over 2,000 hots sauces, had 175+ recipes directories of suppliers, web site and lots of information about Chillies & Chilli Sauce history, I picked my copy up on ebay a good few years ago. It was originally written in 1996 by  Dave DeWitt and Chuck Evans, it went our of print in 2001, the new version will be completely revised to bring it up to date.

This time they have included  Scott Roberts in the team and they are looking for information from suppliers not just in the USA, but from the UK and the rest of the world.

Here is a part of a letter published on Scott’s web site :-
