    A man from Trinidad cooked some fabulous curry for me when I was in my early twenties. This chili pepper popularity was not a thing back then. I had never heard of the Trinidad Scorpion pepper when I sampled the seemingly innocent-looking paste made from it in the little serving cup on my plate next to the delicious curry. At first, the flavour of the chili paste was the most delicious thing I had ever eaten. It was blissful on my taste buds. Then, I was instantly smacked with pain. Forget the heat. It was just pure pain. In that moment, it would have been better had an asteroid hit the earth than to have eaten that chili paste. I will remember it forever. I felt a sickly panic that demanded something be done to relieve the tremendous discomfort. Nothing worked. The pain left after about 10 minutes, or so. Later, I had to let my neighbor try it, of course. I am surprised she ever spoke to me again after giving her some. I thought I had prepared her, did not go well. I am amazed by the stamina of the guests and the host on this show. I know what they are feeling, and yet they handle it far more gracefully than I did when I ate the hot stuff. My friend from Trinidad said that as a child, the fun of eating the Trinidad Scorpion peppers was that it was an adventure - it hurt as much leaving him as it did going in. He liked the extreme experience of it.

    I am surprised at Padma. Has no one commented on the fact that it is NOT restauraNteur? "Restaurateur" No 'N'
    Also, I don't think the Scoville scale is a Subjective opinion. It is a measure of capsaicinoids which isn't up to debate. Measuring concentrations is Objective. Am I wrong?

    • Sai Namuduri
      Sai Namuduri 18 days ago +1

      Scoville units for peppers, yes. There is a scientific method for measuring individual pepper hotness. But for sauces things get a little different, not in the least because you're combining that heat with salt, sweet, AND tang. For example, Da Bomb "feels" a lot worse than objectively hotter sauces because there's nothing there to round it out. It's just pure heat.
