Masters of Social Gastronomy: Burnin' down the Mouth! the Secrets of Spicy Foods

Mar 25 | Mon | 6:30PM | $10 AND UP
View Website

Each month, the Masters of Social Gastronomy take on a curious food topic and break down the history, science, and stories behind it. This month, MSG breaks into the secret world of hot peppers to pull back the curtain on everyone's favorite Rooster-branded hot sauce and the worldwide affection for spicy, spicy food. Follow America's historical love of hot sauce to our present Sriracha obsession. We'll take a behind-the-scenes look at its California factory and see how sriracha just might be as American as apple pie. Once you escape the potatoes-and-cream tyranny of European cuisine, a culinary dedication to heat can be found everywhere. We'll examine what makes Thai food tick and where Indian vindaloo gets its muscle. From mild jalapeƱos to record-holders like the Ghost Pepper and Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, find out what makes a veggie pack such a powerful punch!
