day 201 – four bottles of louisiana hot sauce

Nothing quite combines the beauty and the beast of New Orleans culinary culture quite like its signature condiment: hot sauce. There are an abundance of localized manufacturers of this fiery liquid throughout the state, with some of the best churning it out in the heart of Cajun Country just a few miles out of the Orleans Parish limits.

Each hot sauce comes with it own distinct claim to fame (i.e., “Hotter than the Louisiana Sun!” “Spicy Overload!”) and heat-invoking visual artwork on the bottle: from bulls to babes and beyond.

Taking sugar and spice to the ultimate extreme, many long-time residents claim that hot sauce and powdered sugar is a taste sensation on top of fried calamari not to be missed. You know what? They’re right.
