At the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Chili Pepper Fiesta on Oct. 6 (left to right) James Sheldon (left) and Lily Pisano impersonated chili peppers; visitors could closely examine Malibu purple peppers on display near the lily ponds; and Bill "The Sauce Boss" Wharton & The Ingredients entertained the crowd by simultaneously cooking up spicy Florida blues as well as a scorching pot of Cajun gumbo!

Since 1990, the Sauce Boss has prepared and served more than 80,000 bowls of gumbo during his performances, which prompted Jimmy Buffett to write the song "I Will Play For Gumbo" about Wharton.
