First Annual L.A. Sriracha Festival

L.A. Sriracha Festival

Three hours is not enough. That’s how long the First Annual Sriracha Festival will last.

Randy Clemens, author of two of the easiest books ever to be written in the history of ever (The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch and The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook: 50 Vegan “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch) is behind the idea along with Josh Lurie of Food GPS.

Considering that Sriracha goes with everything, perhaps there will be some surprises at the L.A. Sriracha Festival. It will cost you about $50 to find out on Sunday, October 27, from 3 pm to 6 pm at LOT 613 in the downtown L.A. Arts District. Or, you could just take that $50, go grocery shopping and just squirt some of that delicious, delicious hot sauce on anything and everything you buy. It will taste good.

Then again, the festival is officially sponsored by the maker of the iconic condiment, Huy Fong Foods and David Tran will be making a special appearance. Shaking the hand of the man who changed condiment history might be worth it alone. Be sure to lick your fingers afterward.

Star Wars R2-D2 Soy Sauce Bottle Holder Dispenser

Star Wars R2-D2 Soy Sauce Bottle Holder Dispenser

R2-D2 has it good. Despite the occasional foray into battle, the little droid does pretty well for himself. He gets carted around in spaceships, has a big gold buddy and is down with a princess. However, like all droids, every once in a while he needs a tune up. As in an oil change. Little did we all know, but R2-D2 runs on delicious soy sauce.

The Star Wars R2-D2 Soy Sauce Bottle Holder Dispenser is a handy dandy condiment dispenser that measures about four inches tall (so the Jawas won’t find him). Luckily with or without the scavengers, R2-D2 is ready for service. Dinner service that is. Who knew back in the 70s that R2-D2 leaking oil would be delicious for your rice? Aside from George Lucas, that is.

Barbecue Basting Straight From The Bottle

Jokari Silicone Bottletop Baster

When using barbecue sauce right out of the bottle there is little reason to pour it into a bowl before slopping it on the chicken and ribs. Why have an inbetweener? While emptying it out straight from the bottle might be fast, it’s not the best way to get maximum coverage, but slathering it on with a brush would do the trick. The Jokari Silicone Bottletop Baster lets grillmasters skip the mess and head straight to the good stuff. Just squeeze, baste and eat!

Shake It Up, Don’t Clean It Up

Heritage Mint Lock & Lock Small Sauce

Making a homemade salad dressing is easy enough: just select some ingredients and shake it up. Except it is not so easy when all that oil and vinegar splashes to the floor due to improperly sealed containers. As much as cutting corners is a time-honored kitchen tradition, sometimes it just doesn’t make sense—especially when there are alternatives available.

The Heritage Mint Lock & Lock Small Sauce is a 17-ounce container designed for easy (and safe) salad and sauce making. Featuring a 4-hinge locking lid system that effectively prevents accidental spills, the dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe container makes it easy to whip up homemade salad dressings—even for the most enthusiastic of shakers.

Good gravy! To each their own (sauce).

Mini Sauce Boat (Set of 6)

Sitting down to dinner can be a trying experience. No, I’m not talking about trying to feed the dog Aunt Bertha’s meatloaf on the sly, but rather trying to keep tableside arguments to a minimum. As they say, it’s best to avoid religion and politics while at the dinner table, but that doesn’t stop other arguments from breaking out. Like passing the damn gravy before it gets cold.

This Mini Sauce Boat Set can go a long way to alleviating dinnertime congestion by providing to each their own—their own gravy boat, that is. The set contains six pieces, each polished to an attractive finish. While the individual gravy boats may satisfy all eaters during the meal, unfortunately, they have nothing to say about whose turn it is to do the dishes. (Not to mention the five extra dishes!)
