Who out there loves Sriracha? This week is our salute to Sriracha AND our ode to the waffle, what should have been episodes 21 & 22 respectively, but I decided to combine them both into one absolutely outstanding dish in the Recipe of the Week as I talk about Buttermilk Sriracha Fried Chicken & Waffles. While my frying technique still isn't perfect (I need something that can monitor and maintain oil temperature), the results were just outstanding, especially when drizzled with my delicious Sriracha Honey Maple Syrup. To DIE for.

Also this week, a thematic review as I talk about the spicy chicken sandwich I had as part of a trip to the Finger Lakes awhile back at the RoosterFish Brewing Company in Watkins Glen. There were some great parts of this meal, but one thing stands out as a dismal disappointment. We'll also talk about food allergies that I am sure I have, tossing things into a dish at random to get rid of them, and a lime worcestershire flank steak with a tomato corn salad that was just baller. Thank you all for listening!

Summary: It was a great ending to an even better weekend with some amazing friends; I only wish the chicken had been better. Still, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone passing through or staying in/near Watkins to hit the Finger Lakes. Still a roughly 3-1/2 star experience.
