Cook the Book: 'The Sriracha Cookbook'

20110131-134535-the-sriracha-cookbook.jpgHere's a question for you: What condiment is "excellent in soups, sauces, pastas, pizzas, hot dogs, hamburgers, chow mein or on anything else to give it a delicious, spicy taste?" Need a hint? It comes in a green-topped bottle emblazoned with a rooster. Yup, you got it!

Sriracha—that sweet-hot, garlicky-vinegary, all-purpose chile sauce we just can't seem to get enough of. Some of us have even dressed up as a Sriracha bottle for Halloween.

The Sriracha Cookbook is a small and appropriately bright red volume of recipes devoted to author Randy Clemens' love of the rooster sauce. Clemens has incorporated Sriracha into everything from condiments—think Sriracha-spiked Pesto and Tzatziki—to breakfast dishes, cocktails, and even dessert. Spiced Sriracha Truffles anyone?

This week we will be sharing spicy recipes perfect for Super Bowl snacking including Honey-Sriracha Glazed Buffalo Wings, Devilishly Hot Deviled Eggs, and the Ultimate Sriracha Burger with a healthy dose of Sriracha mixed into the patty. And keep those goggles and plastic gloves handy because we're going to feature Clemens's secret recipe for Homemade Sriracha.
