Fear of Frying

Get over it

I’ve written pieces like this over the years, and they follow a pattern: I get a craving to fry some food, I figure out a batter — it’s often not the same one as the last time — I do it, and I think, “Why don’t I do this more often?”

It’s not difficult: Fried food you do yourself is almost always superior to anything you buy elsewhere. And it is more fun than almost any other form of cooking. But it’s definitely its own style.
