The Sriracha Cookbook
A cookbook devoted to Sriracha, the underground king of condiments, filled with 50 unique recipes that highlight the bold, savory punch of this addictively spicy chile sauce.
Named Bon Appétit's Ingredient of the Year in 2010, Sriracha is one of the few ingredients adored by adventurous cooks of all stripes—from star chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten to college freshmen—who appreciate its vibrant, versatile balance of ketchup-like sweetness, garlicky pungency, and just the right amount of spice. Sriracha adds depth and an intriguing twist to recipes such as Honey-Sriracha Glazed Buffalo Wings, Bacon-Sriracha Cornbread, and the fiery, but refreshing, Srirachelada. Whether they're die-hard fans or have recently discovered the revered "rooster sauce," readers will love learning the backstory to their favorite condiment and incorporating Sriracha into their cooking repertoire as more than just a tableside squeeze.
