I know a few people—a friend in Buffalo, a colleague in New Haven, etc.—whose food simply cannot be hot enough. My friend in Buffalo has an entire shelf in his kitchen filled with half-empty hot sauces, none of which were up to the challenge. Nicholas Young’s bookcase reminds me of that.
Finally, the title of this post is not only a play on the culinary term "devil’s food," but also a reference to the song of that title from the classic Alice Cooper record, Welcome to My Nightmare (1975).
