Burning sensation that hits you in the back
of the nose!!!

Mmmmmmmmmm!

:p :p :D :D


Wasabi is up there, so is Pizza oil,
but Harissa in the fav!


The choices are more categories, if you
have a fav brand, select which type it
falls into and post the "brand".

Tabasco. Goes with anything and can also be chucked in a drink.

Dijon mustard a close second.

Not familiar with Harissa, what's it like? What's the origin?

North African (Tunisia?) red paste, comes in tubes and
cans. Goes perfectly with the famous couscous!!!

Black Pepper, its incredibly useful and versatile stuff- i have way too much of it. Can't believe it hasn't made the listings!

The hottest chilli sauce I ever had was 'Dave's Insanity Sauce' absolutley the hottest ever. Susi's sauce from Antigua comes a close second.

Aha! This is the reason a lot of French have,
up until now, not gone big on very spicy food.
(Thinking it's used to cover up bad meat etc.)

However spicyness doesn't actually taste of anything.
It's a pain response. And the activation of the
pain receptors in your mouth supposedly enhances
the flavours, not cover them up :)

But you do have a point about slathering a dish with
too much condiment.....

Wheres the real chilli. I love the original encona or nandos sauces.

The maddest I had was one called scorned woman that some girl got for me from the us. It was some real proper crazy strong stuff. Never had anything that came anywhere near that.

In moderation, I find condiments improve the taste of food, but over-do it and the taste of food will be smothered.

Harissa is lovely stuff, with some cous cous and a platefull of grilled lamb & chicken, and salad with hummus (sp?) & pitta and washed down with gallons of mint tea... mmmmmmm.... I might go down to Rusholme for lunch :D

I also love West Indian hot pepper sauce, evil yes, but a gret flavour as well:cool:

Mezze is cool too.

If a Middle East peace plan was based on everyone
sitting down and all sharing such a meal, we'd all be
better off...... :D
