Fried chicken lover? Here is a whole book full of fried food porn for you to feast your eyes on without getting greasy fingers. Tonight is the book launch for ‘Ride or Fry: The Dante Fried Chicken Experience’, a book which chronicles the signature dishes that LA-based chef Dante Gonzales has developed during his life since he was a 13-year-old runaway from South Central. He has worked his way up to award-winning chef status and his Ride or Fry cook ups in his food truck celebrate food, art and music. The book is a great illustration of his exploits with colourful images and Keith Haring-style doodles.
To accompany the book, the good folk of Brooklyn studio HellaCrisis will also be running an exhibition showcasing the Ride or Fry experience. To celebrate the closing of the exhibition Dante will be be taking up residency at Death by Burrito and frying up chicken from April 11-14. Jude Brosnan
