The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook Launch at Chloe’s, Golden Road Brewing

by Randy Clemens

Tomorrow marks the launch of the follow-up to The Sriracha Cookbook: The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook. It’s actually likely nearer and dearer to the author’s heart since Randy Clemens himself is vegan.

Whatever our diet, we can all partake in the cult that celebrates the, green cap-topped, garlic-vinegar-red jalapeño sauce that is Huy Fong Foods’ flagship, the famous “Rooster Sauce.” The launch event is free and both cookbooks will be available for purchase with Randy’s autograph – and everyone who does will receive a special edition of Sriracha sauce packaged in a limited edition bottle with “The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook — July 2, 2013” printed on it.

Let’s get started. Continue reading

Golden Road Brewing & Pub Are Awesome (With Details on Hangar 24 Collaborative Dinner)

Golden Road Brew Pub Interior

This few months-old gem in Atwater Village not only signifies the continued evolution and uprising of the Los Angeles brewing scene, it’s a move towards the eco-friendly, gentrification of the beer can. Costing less energy and space than glass bottles in production and recycling as well as affording more protection from the elements for its beers, cans aren’t just used for casing PBR, anymore. Golden Road is out to educate LA beer geeks and dabblers, alike.

The age of Golden Road Brewery also re-introduces sessionable beers to a scene that may have been bent on, or even obsessed with, high ABV beers just a few years back. They are also taking on IPAs by making them a custom by incorporating seasonal ingredients and making each brew truly local. Two go-to’s on those fronts: Their Golden Road Hefeweizen and Point The Way IPA.

Luckily, it’s not just a lone brewery Golden Road, helmed by Tony Yanow and Meg Gill, has up in Atwater Village, but a very cool pub offering each of their beers, 15 guest taps and a very chill, neighborhoody scene where, if you visited often enough, people will know your name. The food menu also has plenty of options for omnivores and vegans alike, so there’s something for everyone in your party.

By the taps...

And what better way to introduce your taste buds to Golden Road by dropping in on their collaborative Hangar 24 dinner? Their good friends from Redlands brought in 70 pounds of blood oranges from Hangar 24’s neighboring orchards thanks to their brewer Kevin Wright. Golden Road’s brewmaster, Jon Carpenter, spent the previous weeks developing a custom yeast for this very special brew, to create the end result: Valentin, a 6.5% ABV French Saison.

This one-of-a-kind beer dinner features dishes created by Golden Road’s Chef Adam Levoe, who worked closely with Jon and Kevin to craft each pairing. The five-course dinner will feature two beers from Hangar 24, two beers from Golden Road Brewing and our collaboration beer, Valentin.

  • First course, paired with Valentin

Local Halibut or vegan hearts of palm ceviche with ruby red grapefruit, blood oranges and avocado salad

  • Second course, paired with Hangar 24’s Vinaceous

This is one beer dinner not to miss out on! Viva Los Angeles beer!
