This is the BEST BOOK EVER for frying really good chicken. I'd searched for decades for THE recipe to make southern fried chicken as I remember my Mom made it. This book has it and many other options that are bound to have one for your taste. The one I found best and used a technique I hadn't previously tried was from a restaurant in Harlem. If I recall correctly the chef was originally from Alabama. At any rate, it you're looking for a good fried chicken recipe, it's sure to be found in this book.
FABULOUS! EASY TO READ. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME I READ OR HEARD THE WORD GRIBENES. I ADORE FRIED CHICKEN AND EVEN THOUGH I DON'T FOLLOW DIRECTIONS WELL, I HAVE COMBINED MANY OF THE INGREDIENTS LISTED IN SOME OF THE RECIPES, AND MY CHICKEN CAME OUT PRETTY GREAT!
I LOVE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THIS BOOK. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BOOK. THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS. I WILL USE AND LOVE THIS BOOK FOR YEARS, AS I PERFECT THE ART OF FRYING CHICKEN.
If you are a fan of Fried chicken, get this cookbook. I've learned valuable tips in this cookbook, that explained the why my Mom made chicken the way she did. Great recipes from around the country. Hattie's Hot Chicken is one my favorite recipes from this book.
I LOVE this cook book! Not only is it filled with several different recipes for fried chicken, but its introductions to the chefs, their restaurants, and their philosophies make for fascinating reading. Even if you have no intention of ever frying a chicken, buy this book, curl up in your favorite chair, and enjoy the story of one of America's classic comfort foods.
A wide variety of ways to fry chicken. If there is an ingredient that can be mixed with chicken or a way to make it I'm sure this book covers it. Some recipes also include side dishes. Having read thru the book I'll make most of the ideas. The couple I have made are good. A must for fried chicken lovers.
Having grown up in South Carolina and raised on chicken fried in an iron skillet by our cook, I know what the real thing tastes like. Her name was Grace Singleton and though she knew a lot of other things, she really knew how to fry chicken.
This book by Lee Schrager and his team is simply a great new book that will provide you with hours of reading as you travel with him along a route that takes you all over the United States to find the eateries cooking up the best fried chicken. From Harlem to San Francisco, Lee covers some really wonderful people cooking their hearts out.
And while there may be hundreds of ways to fry chicken, i think by the way Lee writes about the whole experience, he must like them all!
I love fried chicken so of course I purchased FRIED AND TRUE. There are enough variations of fried chicken in this cookbook to last a good long time.
I do wish I had purchased the hardcopy rather than the Kindle version in this case. The pictures are small on the Kindle and I'd like to be able to see them full-size.
Another small minus: the captions are switched on a few of the pictures but it's easy to figure out which caption goes where.
The recipes mostly come from the South, with a few on the West coast. I would have liked to have seen some from the Midwestern states or more of the Heartland. I know of at least two GREAT chicken places in the Denver area - Wishbone Restaurant around since 1963 and White Fence Farm around since 1973.
If you love fried chicken in all its variations, this cookbook is for you. And I like, that for the most part, the ingredients are easy to find. There are a few more exotic recipes and the book lets you know where you might find the ingredients.
