Hot HOT Dog !
Chicago and New York -both known for their pizza and hot dogs and that's one thing I miss since becoming a vegetarian. I've tried the tofu pups and veggie dogs but they just don't taste that good to me.
In the Food Section of the Chicago Tribune this past Wednesday the heading HOT DOG/HAUTE DOG caught my eye. They asked a few choice Chicago chefs to put a spin on the Chicago hot dog. As if it could be improved.
World famous chef Charlie Trotter's recipe for Asian Tuna Dog caught my attention. His thinking was since there's a tuna burger why not a tuna dog ? But the interesting thing was what he put on it -Wasabi mayo and Spicy Kimchi. Ouch ! That's a one-two punch. This will certainly give new meaning to the word "hot" dog.
