FORESTVILLE Burning Asphalt Sauces' "Sauces For Soldiers" Program, recently announced its publication of a cookbook titled "Taste The Attitude." The funding of the cookbook was provided by South Dayton Supermarket. With the publishing cost covered, 100 percent of the revenue from the cookbook goes directly to "Sauces For Soldiers." The not-for-profit program provides U.S. military overseas troops with sauces, rubs, seasonings and snacks. There is never a charge. Shipments containing a variety of items that Burning Asphalt Sauces produce are packaged and shipped year round providing a "little taste of home."
"Taste The Attitude" cookbook contains 110 easy to make recipes. The book is divided by ingredient category instead of the standard dish category. All recipes are original recipes using Burning Asphalt Sauces, Twisted Vine Gardens, and Soulshine Coffee as ingredients. Jeffrey Furash, president/CEO of Burning Asphalt Sauces, created the majority of the recipes and his wife Marilyn Sticek took charge of cooking the dishes to make sure that all recipes were excellent tasting and easy to make.
"I want to personally thank Jeff Eklund of South Dayton Supermarket, his employees, and all their customers for their continued support of our 'Sauces For Soldiers' Program," said Furash said. "The best part of my two-year cookbook project is that 100 percent of the proceeds from the book and part of the profits of any ingredient of ours purchased to make the recipes goes directly to the program."

This good humanitarian deed started several years before Burning Asphalt Sauces came into existence. Sticek, a retired postmaster, and her postal employees began writing and shipping essential items to deployed servicemen including junk food, books, and toiletries. Some of the troops had requested hot sauces to spice up their food. When her husband got into the hot sauce business, she had asked for hot sauce donations. Eventually the troops continued to request the sauces and the rest is history.
Burning Asphalt Sauces will also personally customize the "Taste The Attitude" cookbook for any business wishing to support the program by giving away the book for the holidays or as a thank you gift to their customers.
"This is an awesome way for businesses to support our overseas troops, the sacrifices they make, and the freedom they give us," Furash said.
The cookbook is available for purchase at South Dayton Supermarket, Evans Bank in Forestville, Willow Creek Winery and Sheridan VFW. It can also be requested at any location that sells Burning Asphalt Sauces, Twisted Vine Gardens, or Soulshine Coffee products.
