In the World of Food, Some Like It Hot!

No matter where you travel in our world, one thing remains constant in the cuisine area:  some like it hot (spicy)!
And food cultures across the world have come up with countless ways to dry, crush, smoke, pickle, brine, and confit chilies into condiments, developing hot sauces that give dishes extra dimension and heat. In the U.S. alone, hot sauce is a $1.3 billion industry.
Below is a global history on hot sauce along with an illustrated tour region by region that spans Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East and Africa.  In some examples even recipes are provided to make your own hot sauce.
