Cooking with hot sauce

Cooking with hot sauce

Now that Passover is over and the March Madness basketball games are completed, its time to catch up on some fun recipes to serve perhaps while watching baseball! That’s how we know spring is here.

Antoine Sicotte aka “The Rebel Chef,” author of the award-winning cookbook, “Le Cuisinier Rebelle,” sent a sneak peek of recipes in preparation for the debut of his third cookbook. He is known to be a big fan of Frank’s Red Hot Pepper Sauce, the secret ingredient used in the original Buffalo wing sauce recipe since 1964. Although the recipes are not certified kosher and adaptations must be made to make them so, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is certified kosher and is a really WOW ingredient.

Frank’s RedHot has a blend of flavor and heat and works well on game day favorites like chili, burgers, pizza, and nachos. (obviously not served together)
