Hey hey my chilli nuts!!! Cast your minds back to June of this year and you may well remember Hot Juan giving us all a heads up on a book coming out called……….

‘Dr Burnorium’s Compendium of Hot Sauces’.

Well today my friends, I have a copy sitting right here beside me.

A handy 13x19cm book which is a great size for your travels and has 40 of Dr Burnoriums favourite hot sauces from around the world. This is not, I repeat NOT!!!!!! A general book filling you with gumpf about the elegant tastes ect.

This book tells you exactly how each of the sauces behave on the taste buds. It will take you on a roller coaster of a ride through the sauces and the makers and each has its very own quirky story and comical value.

But to get into feel for the book you cannot simply go straight into reading about the sauces as I found out when I first picked it up.

You need start at the very beginning, a bit like any normal book really, pillock!! Start at the beginning and you find yourself in the depths of Dr B’s mind and from there you can fully understand and appreciate his language and terminology of the reviews. I mean come on, who the hell can come up with descriptive words for a hot sauce like, Well endowed, good girth? Or hung like a donkey? Brilliant!.

The main producers of the sauces for the book are of course the legendary Blair Lazar, Cajohn, Marie Sharp and David Ashley. A brief update on the old faithful scoville scale before hitting the hot sauce reviews and ending on some awesome recipes. A great read.

I strongly recommend this book for anybody who likes there heat and beyond. Learn about sauces like ‘Wet fart’, ‘Mad dog 357’, ‘Sphinkter srhinker’ and not forgetting the doctors very own ‘Psycho juice’.

Pick up a copy now from Amazon for I believe £9.99 or Dr Burnorium direct and you cannot go wrong. Definitely and informative book with a character of its own. Dr Burnorium  has definitely pulled out all the stops for this book. Thumbs up from me.

So remember guys, if it burns going in, it will burn coming out. Scooby out.
