Susan Feniger is nothing short of an absolute legend in the food industry. She is one of the original stars of Food Network, the woman behind Border Grill and STREET restaurants and a regular on the series Top Chef. It's safe to say the woman does it all.
Her latest book, Street Food, is sure to be a hit among her devoted fans, and will also surely attract a new following of foodies. Since much of her inspiration comes from food carts around the world, it's no surprise that her book is full of delicious and creative international recipes.

How many recipes are included in Street Food?
Spicy Yuzu Mayonnaise
Makes 2 cups
This mayo is a killer (and I mean that in the best way only). You can use it as a dipping sauce with a steamed artichoke, or with leftover steak for your steak sandwich. We squirt this on top of our tatsutage fried chicken at STREET (see page 94), and it’s what makes people die for that dish! The flavor of yuzu is uniquely floral and more complex than fresh lime, which is more sweet and acidic. The combination of yuzu juice with the sweet Japanese mayonnaise is what makes this simple sauce exceptionally delicious. However, if you can’t find yuzu or Japanese-style mayonnaise or the chile paste, use regular store-bought mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and any fresh chile, chopped or pureed in a blender, to create a similar result.
2 cups Japanese-style mayonnaise (I prefer Kewpie brand)
2 tablespoons yuzu juice
2 tablespoons yuzu kosho chile paste
Put the mayonnaise, yuzu juice, and chile paste in a small bowl and whisk together until well incorporated. Store the mayonnaise in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
Yuzu Kosho Chile Paste
This Japanese seasoning is a mixture of yuzu zest, chile peppers, and salt, which is then allowed to ferment. Look for yuzu kosho in Japanese specialty markets. If you can’t find the paste but can find yuzu juice, you can mix it with roasted serrano chiles and the zest of fresh limes.
