Effortlessly uncool.

Deep Fried Conversation

I was chatting to a very nice American lady at the weekend about deep frying food and the conversation came around to Turducken. This was the first time I’d heard of this particular delicacy, although I’d come across similar creature-inside-creature dishes. Despite what the Wikipedia entry says, I was assured that deep frying is quite a popular way of cooking this dish, which I have to say sounds rather unpleasant in a hell-I-have-to-try-that kind of way. Mind you, I have yet to experience the joy that is deep fried Cadbury’s Creme Egg.

    Wow! Deep fried?
    Our local butcher back in Leicestershire used to do a special “three-bird roast” for Christmas. That was very similar, but I’m sure it wasn’t that big.
    How on earth would you deep-fry a whole turkey?

    Apparently, they sell very large deep fryers specifically for doing whole turkeys.
