Hot dog-obsessed blogger van Kraayenburg (chasingdelicious.com) uses unique toppings, quality ingredients, and carefully chosen cooking methods to elevate hot dogs into "haute dogs." Like Holly Schmidt and Allan Penn's Wieners Gone Wild, this cookbook includes history, cooking basics, and recipes for buns and condiments. Unlike many similar titles, it also includes recipes for a dozen types of homemade hot dogs and sausages. Regional variations like the spicy South African sausage roll and the New York system wiener can be assembled from store-bought or homemade components, and they're only challenging when made entirely from scratch. VERDICT A contemporary guide to gourmet hot dogs. Highly recommended.
