Hot Dog for Haute Dogs!

I recently got a sneak peek of a brand new cookbook that, truth be told, isn't even out yet! But I was extra lucky to get an advance copy, and boy, let me tell ya, it's really, truly, unbelievably awesome!

Haute Dogs: Recipes for Delicious Hot Dogs, Buns, and Condiments by blogger Russell Van Kraayenburg is a natural extension of his impressive, award-nominated blogs: Chasing Delicious and The Boys Club.

This book is chock full of interesting information, lush photographs, and unique food combinations. It is certainly not your ordinary cookbook about your ordinary food topic, my friends. Oh, no. Russell first gives us the history of this all-time favorite. Then he delves into the basics, including details about ingredients, cooking methods, and assembly.

Then--for the best part of all--he goes on to give us tons and tons of twists on the dog, from traditional to modern and everything in between. Yes, he even includes recipes for making your own homemade hot dogs, wieners, frankfurters, and sausages. And yes, he also includes recipes for homemade buns, condiments, sauces, and toppings. What more could you ask for?

Author Russell Van Kraayenburg

Just in time for BBQ season, I strongly urge you to check out this book for yourself, either by pre-ordering it as a paperback or Kindle version (Quirk Books published it) or by getting it from your library. Your hot dogs will never be the same!
