4 Levels of Fried Chicken: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 27 June 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of fried chicken. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which fried chicken was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/chef-chris-scott-buttermilk-lemonade-fried-chicken
