Occasionally on our Facebook page, we play a little game called Like or Dislike, with ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, even favorite cooking gear. Starting today, Like or Dislike comes to The Perfect Pantry on Saturdays. Do you like, dislike, love, crave, despise, wish for, use in your own kitchen? The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell!
It's no secret that I love hot and spicy food. I've got a stockpile of chili paste with garlic, in case the end of the world arrives and the Asian market is closed. Another favorite is Sriracha sauce, also called "rooster" sauce, which my grocery store sells and which I buy in the largest size bottle available. (If the apocalypse comes, head over to my house. I don't know what we'll have to eat, but whatever it is, we'll make it spicy.) Restaurants discovered this Thai-style hot sauce years ago, and now home cooks have made it their own.
