You Asked for It!

Remember when I posted the "Potato Ball in Potato Box" video, and you guys started joking around about deep frying it? Well, here you go! This was a YouTube video response from kashioable.

Btw, after play with it for so long, did you eat it?

just wondering if maybe, just maybe you used the same "twice fried" technique you used in your "restaurant style crispy fries" video.... hmmm.

Did you eat it? Was it good? I'm planning on making a BIG OL' BATCH of fries (using your method, of course), and I wouldn't mind having a few of these be cool little edible center pieces (assuming it was good).

first, this is not my video.

In case anyone is thinking of doing this, it wont work. the potato inside will never cook before the thin box would overcook.

Hey chef John maybe it's possible if you cook the potato on the microwave first cause it usually cooks from inside out and then deep fried it

"he didn't know it was impossible and did it"

Hi Chef John! I'm an absolute fan of your incredible talent!! you are my favourite chef in the whole world! you have completely changed my food-life!anyway, i'd like to ask you a favor... for my wedding in august i'm searching for a non-alcoholic cocktail that's very refreshing but not too fruity. could you please rescue me chef john? thanks a lot ;-)

Chef John said...

thanks! Sorry, but non-alcoholic drinks are not my thing! I really have no experience. I think you are much better off googling "best non-alcoholic cocktails" Good luck!

This is badass. I tried to make one last night but it came out trapezoid and covered in blood for some reason. It's a mistake to try and make this with pocket Leatherman.
