After years of writing and playing music, several albums and tours with the 80's hair band Herazz, it was time to turn my attention to another venture. Being a lifelong Chilehead and lover of spicy food, I was encouraged to share my experiences with my spicy addiction. Have you ever eaten something so good that you wanted to share it with everyone? That's why I created Tastingtheheat.com. I wanted a fun, easy and entertaining way for people to get to know and understand the different hot sauces, BBQ sauces, salsas and all other things spicy. I wanted to make an easy guide that wasn't drawn out or overly complicated, yet informational. I've done this by making videos for YouTube and sharing information on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I try my best to showcase what great products the industry has to offer and with the positive feedback I was receiving, Tasting The Heat really took off. It's all about the taste, the heat is an added and necessary bonus. I don't just spoon taste sauces, because I like the 'right from the bottle' flavor, but I also cook with all of them with different foods I feel they would pair well with. This is what really makes these sauces shine as the flavor evolves into something unique and mouthwatering. I want to show how incredible these small batch artists are and the many delicious and versatile ways they have created sauces, salsas, rubs, candies and much more for everyone to enjoy. Seek out and support your local hot sauce makers by word of mouth, websites or locate a local event showcasing these delicious hidden gems. Come be part of all the spicy fun at Tastingtheheat.com and get up to the minute updates on the Tasting The Heat Facebook Page. And don't miss the only spicy food talk show on Facebook, Tasting The Heat Live on Sunday nights at 8:00 EST.
