When we moved from log house to city apartment, I downsized my large cookbook collection, and kept fewer than 100 cookbooks. What made the cut, and why?
Why I've kept it: Small is beautiful, except when it comes to the size of the Sriracha bottle in my refrigerator, which is the largest that will fit on the shelf. This little collection of 50 "rooster sauce" recipes packs a huge punch. Recipes include starters to dessert and even cocktails, all kicked-up with the heat of Sriracha hot chili sauce. Whenever I flip through this book, I get inspired in new ways to turn up the heat in my own cooking.
You'll love the miso-Sriracha glazed salmon, the first recipe I made from the book and shared here on the blog.
Broccoli slaw salad with peanut-mango Sriracha dressing owes its inspiration to a slaw recipe in The Sriracha Cookbook.
You can find more recipes with Sriracha in The Perfect Pantry, because I'm an unrepentant hot sauce addict and I've shared many recipes that call for it. Sriracha avocado deviled eggs and tuna burgers with Sriracha mayonnaise, to name just two, make frequent appearances in our kitchen.
Bookmarked, to try next: veggie Sriracha frittata, Elliot's grilled-vegetable salad (with Sriracha vinaigrette), chilaquiles.
