Brighton Hot Stuff

A small but growing business, even more full of friendliness and enthusiasm than the other artisan hot sauce makers on this list. These guys were lovely to meet, down on the beach, at brighton’s Fiery Foods UK chilli festival, and I walked away with a whole bunch of their sauces. As well as a free and tasty bag of Szechuan Peanuts.

Those nuts impressed me but so, too, did their Jalapeno and Hop sauces, their use of the armageddon chilli, their charity Bird’s Eye sauce and their Kimchi. Plus Cauldron, their collaboration with a company called Lazy Scientist, is the first time that I’ve ever enjoyed pumpkin.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the work of these brighton boys, time and again, so do give their website a browse. And maybe check out Jaz Coleman’s, too, for their latest collaboration with him – The lead singer of the band Killing Joke.
