It also starts by giving you a few chapters of background and how to cook correctly AND effectively with hot sauce- a very helpful add in. If you are a fan of hot sauce, you need to buy this book, it will change your world!

This cookbook is delightfully informative when it comes to the history of peppers. I was able to broaden my knowledge on the various names & relative hotness of all the many varieties of peppers the world has to offer. There was even a chart which listed the peppers by name in order of spice—So helpful! There are so many recipes to choose from all around the world. I’m very excited to entertain & try some new dishes with my guests. I’m most looking forward to the Red Rooster Cocktail, which mixes Sriracha & Singha beer among other ingredients. I’ve got an adventurous palate, if you think you do too, buy this book!

Do you know that the sting of a hot chili releases endorphins?  Perhaps that is one of the reasons for our love of these fruits. We learn some history and folklore about peppers.  She describes many different varieties – where they are grown and nuances of taste and heat.  And finally – recipes, recipes and more recipes!  No more Frank’s and Cholula for me!

The Hot Sauce cookbook is such a must for hot sauce lovers I bought a copy as a gift, too! An easy and informative read that teaches you not only the levels of hear but what to do with each homemade sauce. This book left me hungry for a Panfried Catfish Sandwich with Spicy Mayo, the roasted Beet salad with harissa and the Broiled Cod with Brava Sauce. I'll be making Cabbage Slaw verde this week!

My boyfriend really likes spicy food but I haven’t cooked many spicy dishes before. This book was a good place to start! The guide to fresh and dried chili peppers in the book was really helpful, especially for a beginner like me. My favorite recipe so far is the chicken satay! I should note that I received this book for free.

My family has some hot sauce lovers. As an amateur cook, it can be difficult working hot sauce into every meal. The Hot Sauce Cookbook was my answer. With step-by-step instructions for each recipe as well as serving recommendations, cooks of every skill level will enjoy this hot sauce guide. I am so happy I got to enjoy this book for free!

I found this cookbook so fascinating. LOVE the breakdown of chiles- who knew there were so many?! I really like spicy foods and the recipes in this cookbook make me feel like I can cook some of my favorite exotic dishes at home. Fresh sriracha?! I can’t wait to experiment!

This book is a true education as well as a handy resource, especially the Scoville scale. It covers heat index levels as well as flavors such as fruity, sweet, mild, hot, smoky, earthy, herbal, and/or nutty. I'm truly impressed with the quick and easy recipes as well as its in-depth processes that include fermentation. There are some great ideas like mixing hot sauces with condiments or adding it to softened butter to add spice to whatever you're cooking.

Thank you.  This is the best go-to reference book I have found on making hot sauces and chilis.  This will save my household plenty of money.  The hot sauces seem to go on everything that I make in my house.  I love the tips they give in this book.  Things that should be common sense but people wouldn't think of. Now off to the grocery store.

I've been wanting to try and make homemade hot sauce, and this is the only book I think I'll need! It contains a great intro to read before you get started, complete with an awesome scoville chart, and the chapters are broken up into region - Latin America, Louisiana, Asia, the West Indies/Caribbean, and "Beyond". I can't wait to try and make homemade Frank's Hot Sauce and sriracha, but there are far more adventurous sauces here too. I can't wait to try them! My only complaint is that there aren't any pictures.

I love spicy food, and while I like cooking, I'd never really explored or been exposed to spicy recipes. I'm really pleased with this discovery. It splits chapters into regions for easy reference, and has a small but international assortment of recipes to try! Definitely a great, and affordable recipe book.

The book “Hot Sauce Cookbook: The Book of Fiery Salsas and Hot Sauce Recipes” is a must have for the lovers of spice. The recipes are easy to prepare and don’t contain too many ingredients, even thought some of the Asian’s recipes have some ingredients that might be a little unfamiliar, other than that, all the ingredients are simple and easy to find like onions, garlic and vinegar. To finalise, the book grace us with some authentic regional recipes for entrees to add to the sauce recipes.

I liked this book because the recipes don't have infinite lists of hard-to-find ingredients. Many of them are items most people have on hand, like onions, garlic, tomato sauce, salt and vinegar. A lot of them are no-cook and quick and easy to make. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try one of the recipes with more ingredients that are harder to find. Also, many of the chapters have recipes for entrees at the end, so you have something to try your sauces on!

The Hot Sauce confirms that I love chiles for all the right reasons! The Hot Sauce Cookbook: The Book of Fiery Salsa and Hot Sauce Recipes breaks down the flavor and origin of each chile and pepper and challenges each hot sauce with a recipe to try. You don’t have to be an expert in chilies to love this book. If anything it’s an informative read and offers great tips on making any type of hot sauce.

This is a very easy to read and informative book for the beginner or intermediate chef in your home.  This cookbook is filled with a wealth of knowledge of peppers from around the world and step by step recipes. I was thrilled to know there was an explanation of the Scoville Hot Sauce Heat Scale. My only regret was that there were no images to show what the different peppers look like.

The Hot Sauce Cookbook is not just a book filled with zesty sauce recipes...it's so much more! With historical facts and spices from all around the world The Hot Sauce Cookbook by Rockridge Press takes you on a journey around the world in your mind and in your mouth! Sriracha has always been one of my favorite hot sauces, and now I know that it was named after a coastal city in Thailand!! This book is a great way to spice up your life!

Great book to mix up your meal routine. I love spicy food and really love different styles of cuisine and this catered to that perfectly. The Jamaican jerk sauce is my favorite! The only cons are that the recipes don’t have nutritional info & there is no quick reference for how hot each dish is. Book is definitely worth it though.

This book has lots of great information and ideas.  There are lists of both fresh and dried chiles available to help you get started.  There are not recipes for just salsas and hot sauces but also for dishes that contain these ingredients.  The author has broken down many recipes by region including Louisiana, the Caribbean, and Asia.  There are some delicious Cajun recipes that embody that hot, fiery taste.  Overall this book is great for those looking to add some spice to their palate.

Not only is The Hot Sauce Cookbook (Rockridge Press) a veritable treasure of hot sauce recipes, it actually explains the many distinctions between chiles, the staple ingredient for hot sauce.  Hot sauce lovers will delight in the seventy-five plus, easy-to-follow recipes that contain ingredients readily available at most grocery stores and ethnic food shops.

With over 75 recipes from all over the world, this cookbook offers something for everyone. If you would like to learn how to make your own salsa , you have a variety of recipes to choose from. An easy to make recipe is the pan fried catfish with spicy mayo. I made and tried this and let me tell you it melts in your mouth. For those like me who enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes, this book will not disappoint. You will find a variety of salsa’s to make from scratch along with dishes to try them on. I highly recommend this book for all lovers of cooking.

This might be the only time I’ve ever claimed a cookbook was informative in more than just a culinary sense! I’m a little uncultured (read: ignorant) when it comes to the foods of some places around the world so it was a delight to read a book that took such an even view of hot sauces from all over. Even if you think you know everything about international cuisine and spiciness, I’d still recommend giving this cookbook a read, if not to just have one place you can find a way to add whatever kind of flavor of spiciness you need to your day.

This is a great book for the cook who wants to try making their own hot sauces and salsas and isn't sure where to start. The first half of the book contains practical advice for making your own hot sauces and salsa, and the book begins by telling the reader what hot sauce is, briefly describes the scoville scale – how chiles are ranked, and describes the differences between different chile peppers, and between fresh and dried chiles. The second half of the book is a collection of easy to follow, tasty, hot sauce and recipes using chile peppers from all over the world. - Kathleen Smithson

I love this cookbook. I am a novice at using hot sauce for cooking and this one did a great job guiding me gently into easing some spice in my menu. It is simple and concise, no fluff or frills. The recipes are great and easily reproducible in the home.

Who knew there was so much to learn about hot peppers! The Hot Sauce Cookbook is more than just a cookbook. It is filled with fun facts about different types of peppers from around the globe. It even explains how the spiciness of a pepper is measured. I really enjoyed the authors  suggestions on how to incorporate some of the hot sauces into delicious sounding recipes. This book would be a great gift for any hot sauce enthusiast or cook who enjoys cooking with heat.

Zip and Zest in Your Kitchen   Sriracha has always been my favorite hot sauce, but I never knew it was named after a coastal city in Thailand. This is only one of many interesting and imperative facts you’ll find in the first couple chapters of The Hot Sauce  Cookbook. After that, brace yourself for recipes ranging from the Southwest to Central America, the West Indies,  and more. The chipotle citrus salsa, among others may become my new favorites.
