From the organizers:
Sriracha is a cultural mashup that typifies American cuisine: based on a Thai sauce, it was created by a Vietnamese immigrant of Chinese descent, and is made outside of LA with California-grown ingredients. In 20 years, it’s crossed over from a condiment for Pho to a mainstream American ingredient.
Historic Gatronomist Sarah Lohman has traveled to Sriracha’s California birthplace to see the factory and interview David Tran, the hot sauce’s genius creator. She’ll share with you the fascinating history of Sriracha as well exclusive interviews, primary source research, and a special peek into its artisinal production process. All your burning hot sauce questions will be answered as we explore how Sriracha has become more American than apple pie.
We’ll also demo how to make a Thai omelet!
