Chilehead Monthly – October ’15

October 2015

September was quite a month for this Chilehead. Coming off of August with my vacation ride to Chicago for the Great Chicago Fiery Food Festival, I traveled even more in September. Starting with the Bowers Chile Festival in eastern PA on Friday the 11th, and then the next day I took off to Sussex County, New Jersey for the NJ Taco Festival for back to back outdoor events. The following Saturday I got back in the car and went to the Jersey Shore for PicklePalooza, and the following Thursday I ventured off to Indiana for Open Fields. That was 1200 miles just by itself. A journey that was well worth the gasoline.

Bonjour Chileheads,

In the upcoming months I will tell you about my Canadian passion for hot peppers, but first, let me introduce myself to you. My name is Martin Lamoureux and I live in a small town in the suburbs of Montreal. I became interested in chilli peppers in my teenage years at a time when fresh peppers were rare here in Canada. As the years progressed, I discovered some excellent spicy products, especially hot sauce. That world fascinated me, and a couple years later I found a guy who had published a review about a hot sauce and it really captivated me. This reviewer many of you know; he is Mr. Bill Moore. After watching several videos of Bill, I said to myself that here in Quebec we have no one that does this type of thing for the Canadian Chilehead. I decided to take it upon myself to create such a reviewer and I began to offer my own review with sauces from here. The problem for me was that most stores only carried the likes of Tabasco and Frank’s Red Hot, and I wanted the same sauces that Bill Moore was reviewing.

Jason and Roberta Parker are the exclusive makers of eight different hot sauces and about 14 different flavors of pepper jams.

For those that do not know me, I am Al “Buddah” Goldenberg, the owner of and the creator of this very Chilehead Monthly newsletter. I wanted to create a newsletter that pulls in some of the very talented individuals that make up the ever-growing Chilehead Community. I have asked some people you will know from Facebook or YouTube, and others you might not know of at first, but you will get to know through their columns they will write to you each and every month. Each Writer we have assembled here has some form of passion that drives them. I have asked each writer to give us a little of that in this month’s column. We wanted introductions and that is what we are giving you. I asked for some spicy recipe ideas and we have a few of those as well. I even got 2 spicy product makers to talk about their experiences in 2 of the big fiery food festivals in July. You can check out our recently updated Spicy Events Schedule HERE.
