I learned about Sriracha, a.k.a. Rooster Sauce, at Thai and Vietnamese restaurants in New York. Then my Korean roommates always had it in stock, though it’s not traditionally Korean. Then I moved to Los Angeles and found out that everyone–everyone–had a bottle of this in their fridge. In fact, you can’t consider yourself prepared to feed guests unless you have a bottle of this stuff on hand at all times. I’ve watched friends raid other friend’s fridges looking expressly for Sriracha, then squeeze half a bottle onto every bite of a burrito. (Actually, you need to stock Sriracha and Tapatio to be fully prepared for guests in Los Angeles.) And now there is an entire cookbook dedicated to celebrating the myriad ways to use Sriracha sauce, even in desserts!
