HSB News Round Up

The Hot Sauce Book (link)
On behalf of the Hot Sauce Blog I’m pleased to announce that we are joining forces with Mud Puddle Books to create an updated & comprehensive guide to hot sauces & hot sauce manufacturers. Several of the hot sauce books on the market were published long ago and it’s time for a new version with the latest in what’s hot.

That’s where you (the manufacturer) come in. If you make a hot sauce, we want you in the book! To be included simply fill out the downloadable form (PDF) and return via fax, email or regular mail. The deadline for form receipt is March 9th, 2007 ““ samples need to be received soon there after so that the photographer can begin shooting for the book.

The book will feature a brief description of the bottle of hot sauce and associated manufacturer, so it’s important to provide as much information about your products as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will also be available for discussion at the Fiery Foods Show next week.

Today at 1:00pm (Eastern), the HSB will be featured along with Taste the 4th Sense on the show Living in Toronto. For those who don’t have access to the CBC it will be available to be uploaded from the CBC shortly.

You wanted hotter taste with the same great flavor and Mad Anthony’s has heard the call! Mad Anthony’s XXXTra Hot Private Reserve is in the final stages of preparation and is just what you need to turn your favorite meal into a five-alarm inferno. So ice up those ass cheeks and get ready to sizzle, because Mad Anthony’s XXXTra Hot Private Reserve is on its way! Don’t forget to have the Fire Dept. on speed dial.

Mike & Diane will be hanging out at the Hot Shots booth on Friday of the Fiery Foods Show – debuting the new sauce.
