Serious Eats: Talk
Kind of gross, and I probably shouldn't eat it, but can't resist
I write this as I sit at my desk desperately trying to hold onto my stomach. Let me start by saying that I can cook, and I love to cook, and I'm surrounded by great cooks who also love to cook. One of my favorite dishes is fried chicken, love it. My mom makes the best ever, my sister a close second, with my wife not far behind her. For whatever reason, I've never mastered the technique; it's just not something I do well, which leads me to this post. Is there something that you can't resist, that's WAY over processed, no where near artisanal or organic, or even close to made from scratch, that you know you shouldn't eat, but you do anyway, only to regret it like hell the next day? My FMD (Food of Mass Destruction) is Banquet Southern Style, skin on, of course, frozen chicken in a box. Served up with a side of Stovetop and a can or jar of generic gravy... I know, how I can claim to hold fried chicken in such high regard and then eat this. I am only but a man...
Anyway, do share,
