Get Your Spice On at the 1st Annual LA Sriracha Festival

1st Annual Los Angeles Sriracha Festival.

Check out the chef-driven event celebrates Sriracha—the world’s most iconic hot sauce—in the downtown Los Angeles Arts District on Oct. 27.

We pay homage to many delicious things in Los Angeles: fried chicken, food trucks and tacos—to name a few. That’s why it only seems fitting for us to turn up the heat for our favorite hot sauce—Sriracha—with bites from some of L.A.’s best chefs from restaurants around the city. And who better to organize than the man who wrote the book, Randy Clemens author of The Sriracha Cookbook and The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook.
