This book is just okay, even from a rabid sriracha consumer,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 "Rooster Sauce" Recipes that Pack a Punch (Kindle Edition)
I feared buying this book. I was worried that most of the recipes would consist of "Take common recipe/Food + Sriracha".
It turned out to be true, but the author cleverly disguises it. A recipe for spicy ranch is a recipe on how to make ranch dressing with some sriracha added in. The author even admits you could just use pre-made ranch from the bottle and mix in sriracha.
And that's how most of the recipes are in this book. Cornbread + Sriracha = Spicy Cornbread. There are a few original and good sounding recipes, but definitely the bulk of the book is filler with normal common recipes with a tablespoon or so of sriracha thrown in.
I don't have any regrets buying this book. Sriracha is great, and I'm happy to support the author, but to be honest I wasn't impressed with the book either. It will be something I'll proudly own as a Sriracha fan, but after skimming through the book once I doubt I'll use it again.
