January 01, 1995|By Karol V. Menzie

Some of the best chefs in town will be cooking up a heart-healthy storm a week from Saturday for Heartfest, an evening of dancing and dining that benefits the Johns Hopkins Hospital's Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease.

Participating chefs include those from Citronelle, Hampton's, Linwood's/Due, Cafe Troia, the Polo Grill, Spike and Charlie's, the Helmand, Bombay Grill, the Admiral Fell Inn, Morgan Millard, Peerce's Plantation and Biddle Street caterers.

There will be a talk by Dr. Myron Weisfeldt, chief of the Department of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, on prevention of heart disease in the year 2000. Other doctors will be on hand to discuss recent findings in the field.

The event starts at 7 p.m. Jan. 14, at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel. Tickets are $50 per person. To order, call (410) 879-1759, or send a check to Heartfest, c/o Events by Design, 908 S. Main St., Bel Air, Md. 21014.

Saucy stuff

The onset of cold weather can be disheartening, but there's a way to turn up the heat and keep it on all year: Join the Hot Sauce Lovers Club and sample a different fiery sauce each month of the year. The Dallas-based club selects sauces from places near and far, including Texas, Louisiana, Mexico, Jamaica and Thailand. Degrees of hotness range from mild to "insane flames of fire," the club says.

Memberships cost $39.95 or $69.95, and include the sauce of the month, plus the Hot Flash newsletter, with pepper lore, information on events, recipes and tips. To order, or for more information, call (800) 988-SAUCE (do dial the extra digit).
