I'm a supertaster, and hot stuff tastes way hotter to me than it does to most people. So I think I had best stay far away from the Burritos of Doom.

Being a Scottish man, I am statistically prone to obesity; coronary heart disease; and cirrhosis of the liver. That's why I don't deep fry anything, I shallow fry low-fat foods in olive oil; I never add salt to ANYTHING (even spaghetti); but unfortunately I still drink like a Scotsman with the head of a rabbit. Well, you can't have everything, I suppose. That's why I need to add flavour to my food using chillis, garlic, ginger, smoked paprika, lemon juice, cumin, freshly ground black pepper, in fact anything that is not salt.

Come over Friday night. You cook, I'll get the beers in. I'm sure Mrs. H. and Mrs. T. will get along fine while we talk about windows, guitars, and what-have-you. I'm sure you can find it - between Ireland and Scandinavia. Lots of hills.

Over here buffalo mozzarella is the regular kind, and the cow's milk kind is the exception (but then we have a big Italian population). I don't know how you get it 'Stateside, but proper buffalo mozzarella here comes in a bag full of water to stop it drying out (I have no idea what the ready-grated stuff you get in pizza shops is made of). When you take it out of the bag, you squeeze the cheese to get the excess water out of it, and then it flakes apart beautifully (and when you squeeze it, it smells amazing). A bit of mozzarella in your tomato sauce really adds something to it. Oh yeah - calories, that's what they're called.

I really like a bit of Parmesan on my spaghetti, but in Europe at least the word 'Parmesan' is only allowed on cheese produced in one region of Italy (much like Champagne in France), so when you see 'Parmesan Reggiano', you know it's the real deal. There are other hard cheeses that are, IMHO, every bit as good as parmesan, but don't come from the right region, so can't use the word Parmesan. Still, watch out for them - they're cheaper...

Actually, I was there once, in 1986, with Mrs. T. 1.0. Come to think of it, there were lots of hills. Unfortunately, at this point in my slowly deteriorating life, I can barely afford the gas to drive to work, so a voyage to Scotland is a bit out of reach. I imagine it won't be long before we're able to do a full audio/visual get together over the interwebs, though. Just have to work on the food teleporter a bit more...

Ever tried Asiago? That stuf'll curl your eyebrows, for sure.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Speaking of cheeses that'll curl your hair, ever tried "blarney castle"? (retches)

My mom deep fries wings then coats them with tiger sauce and bakes them and they turn out great.

Is "tiger sauce" the actual product name? It sounds intriguing, and I have just the guinea pig...I mean volunteer to try it out.

We like to use Locatelli/Pecorino Romano on our sauce (I also live around a lot of Italians).

As far as hot sauce is concerned,

that is some serious hot sauce. It's beyond a mere condiment and into full-blown ingredient territory, an ingredient that if you don't respect it it will kick your ass. If I add more than 2 drops of it to a pot (not a bowl, a pot) of chili, it's too spicy for my girlfriend.

The most potent sauce i've ever seen is just called "The Source". I think ebay sells it...

I just like the top bit of the label: "Blair's Sudden Death". Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

If you are going to post a "Blair's" product why not go for the gold.

This is not even a sauce, but rather pure capsaicin crystals with a scoville rating of 16 million (just for reference jalapenos are less than 8,000 and habaneros are less than 350,000). It sells for $550 for 1 ml.

If you were to drop that bottle on your kitchen floor you would literally need to call a hazmat team to come in to clean it up. Even then, I would find a new place to live just to be safe.

I'm given to understand you're not supposed to be able to purchase the pure stuff without a license (at least in the States).

The hottest stuff I have inflicted on my bf so far is called Insanity. He says it's the hottest sauce he's ever run across, even more so than the previously top-ranked 100% Pain. I'll have to see if I can locate both tiger sauce and the Sudden Death. Oh, and I love the name.

Tiger sauce isn't going to melt your face... it just tastes good with wings.
