Review quote

""The Sriracha Cookbook" is a wonderful little book that embraces flavor, celebrates creativity and, most of all, trumpets the wonders and versatility of a single condiment that just might change the way you think about eating." --The Sacramento Bee, 8/31/11 "It's truly a condiment worthy of a cookbook, and Randy Clemmons brings the heat." --flavorwire.com "Named after a Thai fishing town, and created in its current form by a Vietnamese immigrant in Los Angeles, Sriracha - AKA "rooster sauce" - is experiencing a meteoric rise in mainstream popularity. But the bright-red chili sauce in the clear plastic bottle is no niche ingredient, like truffle paste or salt cod. Its five basic elements (peppers, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and salt) cover every part of the flavor spectrum, making it a surprisingly versatile additive: while "The Sriracha Cookbook," as one would expect, contains many Asian recipes, it also branches out internationally with recipes like Sriracha Pesto, Sriracha Ceviche, and Bacon-Sriracha Cornbread. Most importantly, while author Randy Clemens clearly enjoys his titular ingredient (and is a confessed spice junkie), he has a strong culinary background, and his well-tested recipes succeed in making the book much more than a novelty." --John Peck, Diesel, A Bookstore (Oakland, CA), February 2011 "At this time of year, we have to look for heat wherever we can get it - especially on our food. Luckily, we have Sriracha - that garlicy, ketchupy bottle of hot sauce that's so versatile, one man devoted an entire cookbook to it." --WBUR, Public Radio Kitchen blog, 2/22/11 "Small and compact, this cookbook's 50 recipes demonstrate Sriracha's widespread culinary versatility not just as a condiment--say, on eggs and fries--but as an ingredient. Clemens presents ways for you to infuse some Thai chili heat into a fruit salad, corn chowder, burger, and even chocolate truffles. It only takes a little bit to get big flavor!" --Ep
