HOT FAT by Russell Alford & Patrick Hanlon
"Hot Fat is all about the delicious art of deep-frying, which goes far beyond just chips (but that’s a wonderful start, and indeed the cover of the book!) and is a petite, digestible and seriously delectable cookbook to appoint any shelf or kitchen counter. It’s the culmination of a year of work and we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved." ~ Russell Alford & Patrick Hanlon, GastroGays
Russell Alford and Patrick Hanlon are fried food aficionados – they are absolutely obsessed with anything that can be put in a deep fryer or a pot full of dripping. They've taken familiar favourites, chipper classics and the flavours we can’t get enough of these days and have created the ultimate version of every recipe, from the perfect chips to spice burgers, corn dogs and Korean fried chicken. Their style is all about fun, casual and approachable food, which is exactly what this book delivers.
Hot Fat is the debut cookbook by Irish foodies Russell Alford and Patrick Hanlon, aka GastroGays. Inside, you’ll find recipes for everybody’s favourite fried foods. Think onion rings, prawn toast, chips, even the perfect potato crisps.
Plus, the team have ensured the book can be enjoyed guilt-free, avoiding language like “dirty”, “guilty” and “cheat meal”. The authors say “Hot Fat is ultimately about pure, unadulterated, edible joy.” Now doesn’t that sound delicious? Russell and Patrick are the food and travel writer duo behind GastroGays, as well as the voices in the Chew the Fat podcast.
