The Culinary Historians of Southern California present Randy Clemens, who will explore the history of Sriracha hot sauce, from its humble beginnings as a spicy Thai condiment to the massive fame of its American "rooster sauce" counterpart.
Randy will sign copies of his hot-off-the-presses book during the reception. Hot--get it?
