Young Soo Kim, 3-D rendering wizard, initiated the first annual “Burning Tongue Dinner”. This was a pot-luck dinner where everyone had to bring something super spicy, per Young Soo “participants needed – no spectators allowed.
In other words, participation involved willingness to cry. Delicious ‘burning’ choices included spicy watermelon, very spicy brownies, spicy hot chocolate, several curries, spicy kimchi, fried bananas with orange-chocolate sauce, hot wings, spicy sauces to put over rice, wasabi chicken, spicy Arcosanti peach chutney with hot cinnamon rice, jalapeno canape’s, spicy vegetable juice with ginger and habanero.
The table was set up with dishes ranging from mild to medium to little mercy to no mercy.
We had a great time.
