From hot sauce to wonderland

If you can’t take the heat, stay out of Oxford, N.C. on Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fourth annual North Carolina Hot Sauce Contest will offer sauces made in the Tar Heel State for tasting. Judges will select the hottest and best all-around sauces. Participants can vote for the People’s Choice sauce. There will be local beers and wines to put out the fire, and live music. For more information, see the web site. Last year’s contest saw the emergence of the bhut jolokia pepper (also called ghost pepper) in sauces as the hottest pepper in history. Will there be more this year? I like fire, but I do prefer some flavor with the heat.

On Sept. 14, An Alice Affair will be held at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, N.C. to benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. The theme of Alice in Wonderland will include food, a silent auction, a casino and a tabletop design competition featuring area caterers. For more information and tickets, visit the food shuttle’s web site.
