|Brewla Specialty Brewed Bars|
Inside the BiBa space were companies featuring samples of food and drinks. Though I did not try one, Brewla Specialty Brewed Bars flavors Cherry Pomegranate Red Tea, Peach Ginger White Tea, Raspberry Green Tea, Sweetened Espresso and Craft Brewed Root Beer Float all sounded fantastic.
|The Nugget Spot|
Every time I went past The Nugget Spot table, they were out of samples and making more. By about 4:00pm, I was able to get a sample and really loved their crunchy and flavorful nuggets and honey mustard sauce.
Empire Biscuit were serving biscuits and gravy and gumbo samples. Allen's gumbo was nicely seasoned, and I thought the biscuits and gravy were super yummy.
Jarlsberg had some cheese samples and a very tasty grilled cheese sample. Allen loved it so much he had three.
|Chef Derrick Prince|
Chef Derrick Prince was serving a lovely sample of pork that melted in my mouth. The sliver of habanero just about knocked me out since I am a wimp, but Allen ate his with no complaints. The dish was well balanced with great spice and flavor.
|Crowd at New York City Hot Sauce Expo|
Bruce Cost Ginger Ale was my favorite non-alcoholic beverage of the day. We tried the original flavor and it was so fresh tasting and delicious.
|The Jerky Connection|
The Jerky Connection offered some great jerky and the sample Allen tasted had a nice balance of both heat and flavor.
|Jimmy's No. 43 Beef Sliders on the grill|
There was a food section in the center of the vendors selling everything from brisket, sausage to beef sliders. I ordered two sliders from Jimmy's No. 43. There was a slight wait for them to cook but it was well worth it. The sliders were juicy and full of flavor. I wanted more but did not want to wait again, since I had so much more hot sauce to taste and photograph.
Right after I devoured my slider, I bought a strawberry ice cream sandwich from Melt. It was so soothing and tasty. Just what I needed at the moment.
|Me with my Orange Creamsicle and Smores Macarons|
I fell in love with the macarons from Dana's Bakery. I bought the Orange Creamsicle and Smores macarons. The macarons are gluten free, made with almond flour, tender and melted in my mouth.
I tried the spicy caramel sauce from The Madison Chocolatier and it was creamy, very rich with a hint of spice that kicks in after a few moments. This caramel sauce is very satisfying and great tasting.
