FISH & CHIPS
carbonated vodka batter - pacific rock cod - triple cooked fries - mustard seed tartar
I had a lightbulb moment one day doing fish and chips at home. I understood that beer and soda are good in batter because they aerate it, so that when it fries, it develops a very brittle crust. So I wondered, if I put the batter in my iSi whip, would this particular reaction be magnified? I looked online to see if it’d been done before, and FUCK, it had—I wasn’t original at all. Anyway, turned out it was Heston Blumenthal, London’s very own Willy Wonka, who had perfected this technique long before I’d conceived of it. Needless to say, stupid delicious. If you want the recipe, let me know.
