The origin story of The Deluscious
Kimchee Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookie
Once upon a time, I was having a hankering for kimchee — on EVERYTHING. So much so, that I chose to announce it to the world.
…then out from the ether of the twitterverse came the voice of an unusual kimchee ally
Really? on cookies. Ok. I’ll try anything. But little did I know, an idea had been sparked & and would not be squelched until that cookie had been birthed into the world.
The owner/chef of Deluscious, Lydia Shayne, has these crazy ideas all the time – resulting in fantastic couture cookies filled with potato chips & snicker bars to vegan cookies that rival your classic cookie (which they also do very well). This cookie was no different.
Obviously I love kimchee & being Asian and a closet hipster, I have been known to partake in some hipster ketchup (aka Sriracha). I couldn’t wait to try it. So much so, that I asked my fellow foodie friend Lynn Chen @ The Actors Diet to come taste it with me. She had eaten far too many bruxie waffles to add another bite to her day but agreed to come document the adventure.
I had just been on a commercial where I was conveniently in 40s styled hair & makeup, so the effect was doubly surreal. Lynn was beginning to think my hair always looked like this since the last two times she has seen me, I was dolled up in some kind of retro craziness. She was kind enough to take some video of my premiere bite of Delucious Kimchee Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookie & Blue Apples Media made it look fancy.
If you are feeling adventurous, call Deluscious and order a batch of Kimchi Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookies. You can visit their cookie speakeasy here:
They have all kinds of cookies on hand, but if you want to try the Kimchi Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookie you’ll have to order ahead.
