The MSG is key. That shiat is tasty.

justanotherfarkinfarker: The MSG is key. That shiat is tasty.

Not so much tasty in and of itself as increasing sensitivity of taste buds to make the rest of it taste tastier.

It's fine if other fried chicken options aren't available.

Eh.  It loses something without the shame.

We just happened to watch this this morning.


Me: "who's that? The wacky neighbour?"
I was close.

My mother hated to cook and was a terrible cook, and she loved KFC. And we preferred her friend chicken to KFC's. Pepper, salt, flour. Cast iron skillet. A quarter inch of corn oil. And turn, turn, turn. It took her around 2 hours to make enough for the 9 of us. And she grumbled and fussed the whole way.  I haven't had her fried chicken for over 50 years, but I prefer hers to any others.

A friend was trying to make home-made Doritos recently, but she couldn't get the seasoning right.  It just tasted like salty cheese.  Like, pour some table salt on a cube of cheddar.  Salty cheese, with none of the "savory" taste that Americans don't have a good word for.

She asked what I thought it needed, and I immediately said MSG.

She said no way, she never uses it and never will.

So I told her that "salty cheese" was as close as she was ever going to get.

That's called umami.

Yes, it's a loanword.  So is half our language.

Every time I post that word someone posts the Ross from Friends "unagi" meme, so I stopped posting that word.

It's great in just about anything.  I'd probably avoid using it as a pastry topping, tho.

That is pretty great.  I use it in eggs a lot, but also on plenty of other things.

I do an oatmeal risotto with that stuff that is farking amazing.

He's doing a series on dry-aging. Those units were loaned to him by the manufacturer. That kitchen is a set he built in his backyard. Glen has lots of great content. His old recipe series is fun. A. He has a huge collection of pre-WW2 cookbooks. Even little regional and community ones. Highly recommend his channel. Along with Alex French Guy Cooking,  they are in my favorite cooking channels. Alex's obsessive series on recipes for ramen, meatballs, croissants, pizza, and now mother sauces are really good.

Alex's detective work showing that mayonnaise was, in fact, a Mother Sauce and its exclusion was the product of a translation error was great.

I love fried chicken.

You can just dust in flour an fry it up an it is really good, but the best I have ever made is this:

The brine makes the difference.

Yeah, isn't MSG part of the actual Dorito's flavoring?

Yep.  There are huge amounts (relatively) in most fast food and chips, and also occurs naturally in quite a few other foods like cheese and tomatoes.  When people tell me they have a "sensitivity", I usually have to roll my eyes & let it go.  I've only known one person with an actual issue and she's practically a bubble person for all of her food allergies.

look for his studio tour video- it'll blow you away. He has like 12 KitchenAid mixers. But only one Julie.

They're two of my favorite neighbors to the ENE

I liked the fact that 3 of spices were black pepper (and one was white pepper).  Glen has been trying to get the blend right for a while and it is nice to see that he has found a decent conclusion to it.

I had a copycat recipe a while back that I used a couple of times that said that this stuff had all of the "secret herbs and spices."

I do think pressure frying makes a big difference.

Here's the secret to making KFC delicious:

1. Get a bucket of KFC
2. Put it in the trash.
3. Get in your car
4. Drive to Popeye's
5. Enjoy perfect fast food fried chicken
