    Sliced plantains dipped in brown sugar to caramelize, then serve with vanilla ice cream. Your guests will be impressed!

    Reese's Peanut Butter cups.

    Pio's frozen foie gras.

    TTTT, Esquire's Coca-Cola brined fried chicken recipe was not bad. I believe they gave Foo a copy.


    Deep fried foie is actually really good.
    So is pork belly. Brine it, braise it, then deep fry it. Increeeeeedddddiible.

    Also, j, this is a great recipe:
    Get some potatoes, wash them, and bake them in an oven at 350 for 55 minutes. Pull them out, let them rest. Peel them and grate them. Add a bunch of chives, some creme fraiche for creaminess, and some egg just to make it a little bit thicker. Add salt to taste. Fry in the deep fryer til golden. Delicious.

    the real question is what shouldn't you fry? I don't know if anyone has said this but try these:

    raviolis in flour/cornmeal with a little cayenne, paprika, black pepper, and sea salt mm

    try the same mix on cooked bowtie pasta
