Valentine’s day is chocolate’s big day. This is the day when even those weirdos who don’t like chocolate hope for a little something heart-shaped and brown and wrapped in pink foil to be slipped into their hand or mouth. That’s all fine and good, but if we have to read another roundup of the Bay Area’s artisan chocolate shops or another comparison of wine and chocolate combos, we’re going to be seriously put off dessert.
Other foods encompass the spirit of Valentine’s Day, too, you know. It doesn’t always have to be chocolate. For example, today’s for things like fieres inside, hot, sweaty bodies, blushing and the color red in general. Naturally, those are all effects of eating plenty of hot sauce. That’s why we were heartened to find this special, Valentine’s Day menu and recipes on the Hot Sauce Blog:
LINGUINE WITH BABY CLAMS
IN WHITE WINE SAUCE
AND GRILLED PORTER HOUSE STEAK
You can click over to find the recipes, but it may be a bit difficult to execute unless you keep a variety of Infusion brand hot sauces in the house. If you want something a little more ubiquitous, check out the Grinder. No recipes but some important discussion nonetheless.
