Seventh Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo

How hot can you go?

This weekend, hot sauce fans flocked to Greenpoint’s Brooklyn Expo Center for the seventh Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo to learn about the latest innovations in spicy food and to see how many Scovilles they could handle. The Expo’s main stage featured presentations and competitions and culminated in an attempt to set the Guinness Book record for eating the most Carolina Reapers—the hottest pepper in the world—in 60 seconds.

Bryan Bruchman was there to capture all the hot action.
