i have been anxiously anticipating the veggie-lover’s sriracha cookbook ever since i was lucky enough to test a few of the recipes back in summer 2012. my copy finally arrived here in london a couple days ago and it’s even more beautiful than i imagined. filled with gorgeous color photos, it packs 50 ridiculously tasty-sounding vegan recipes that revolve around my all time favorite condiment: SRIRACHA. we’re talking beer-battered fried avocado tacos with sriracha curtido, jackfruit “pulled pork” sandwiches with pickled red onion, and fiery pho chay just to name a few.

the official release date for the cookbook is july 2nd (tomorrow!), and to celebrate, author randy clemens is throwing an epic sriracha-themed LA launch party at golden road brewing. GOD I WISH I COULD GO TO THIS. not only does the menu look fantastic, but david tran (founder of huy fong foods!!) will be in attendance with special limited edition bottles of cock sauce printed with “The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook — July 2, 2013” for everybody who purchases a book that evening. I WANT ONE, IT ISN’T FAIR!

full details from randy clemens himself pasted below:

The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook Release Party
Tuesday, July 2, 2013 — 6 to 11 p.m.
Chloe’s at Golden Road Brewing
5410 W San Fernando Rd., Los Angeles

======

I’m beyond proud to announce that The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook will be released on July 2nd, and naturally, I’m throwing a big party to celebrate.

Join me and a bunch of people with exceptional taste at Chloe’s, the semi-private club at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles. We’ll have tasty grub and splendid beers to fill your mouth-hole, and sweet bluegrass tunes to serenade your ears. 

Try some of the following dishes from my book expertly prepared by Golden Road’s Executive Chef Adam Levoe: 

  • Not Your Mama’s Party Mix 
  • Southeast Meets Southwest Lettuce Cups
  • Burning Thai Bruschetta
  • Edamame-Sriracha Succotash
  • Jackfruit “Pulled Pork” Sammiches with Pickled Red Onion
  • Beer Battered Fried Avocado Tacos with Sriracha Curtido

I’ll be there to chat about all things vegan and to sign copies of both The Sriracha Cookbook and The Veggie-Lovers Sriracha Cookbook. (They will of course be available for purchase at the event.) 

The event is free to enter; food and beer are available for purchase à la carte. There will be a list of suggested Golden Road Beer pairings and a TBA Sriracha-infused DESSERT. Stay tuned for other rooster sauce madness… 

RSVP/invite friends on Facebook | RSVP/invite friends on Google+

please, please, please go to this event and eat lots of sriracha jackfruit sandwiches for me. i’m so bummed to be missing it. 

in closing, here’s a photo of the mean quiche florentine i tested from the book, which i can honestly say is the best quiche i’ve ever eaten (vegan or otherwise) in my life.

Product review: Saucee is kickass sauce!  »

image

My new friend Mohit Jain has recently launched a line of all-vegan, super healthful sauces called Saucee! Each of their all-organic sauces is designed to take the guesswork out of what your meal should taste like. Just grab whatever ingredients you have on hand—veggies, bread, Megan Rascal’s favorite chickpea frittata recipe, rice, salad—add some Saucee, and suddenly it’s a spicy delicious time!

imageMy partner in crime made Megan Rascal’s favorite chickpea frittata for us and I topped mine with the kale Saucee!

Saucee sauces are pretty spicy! Mohit sent me three flavors: capsaicin, turmeric, and kale. I loved them all! The kale is mild, but the capsaicin flavor almost made me wanna ask my landlord to turn off my heat! If you dig spicy it’ll be your new Sriracha. Each sauce is focused around ingredients that rock: capsaicin, turmeric, kale (did you know you can have kale sauce? Yes you can!) maitake mushroom, and flax. Bottom line: Mohit and his team are geniuses!

Each of the Saucee sauces is 100 percent organic, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, with no crappy added colors (hello Sriracha!), fillers, or stabilizers. There are no additional sugars or oils, and they only use organic vinegar as a preservative. Just the good stuff.

The Saucee team just launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the word out about their delicious sauces and sell some bottles at the same time. Get involved so we can all buy their sauces everywhere and always!
