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.

Ketchup And Mustard #10 Can Pumps

Pumps for Heinz #10 Jugs of Mustard & Ketchup. Set of 2. Great For Convenience Stores & Professional Food Service Areas.

Stop having convenience store jealousy. What convenience store jealousy you may ask? Why that would be the sense of condiment envy that one gets after being hypnotized by the endlessly spinning hot dogs by the register. All those condiments just waiting to be piled on…

Even though one can walk into their local Costco and pick up all the #10 cans of ketchup and mustard that they can haul, what to do with them in the home environment has always been a mystery. Until now.

Now, with a simple internet purchase and a trip to the big warehouse store, you too can have the convenience of the convenience store right in your own kitchen!

…Of course you’ll need one of these to go along with your new found condiment pride. (At least for the mustard can, that is.)

A Mayo Getter-Outer

Mayo Jar Spreader

If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em. Not that many of us lick the mayo knife after applying the goopy goodness to sandwiches. Anyway, for whatever reason, mayonnaise jars (as well as many others) typically have hard-to-reach areas inside of them. The result is wasted food for no good reason. Aside from the occasional squeeze bottle, it doesn’t look like mayonnaise jars are going to change anytime soon, so might as well get on board with them and use something like the Mayo Jar Spreader to put an end to the waste. Also works for sauce jars, in which the makers are apparently in cahoots with the mayo people.

**UPDATE 2/20/2013**

Funny, the product link above didn’t stick around, so here’s a new one:
