Russell Alford and Patrick Hanlon are fried food aficionados – they are absolutely obsessed with anything that can be put in a deep fryer or a pot full of dripping. They’ve taken familiar favourites, chipper classics and the flavours we can’t get enough of these days and have created the ultimate version of every recipe, from the perfect chips to spice burgers, corn dogs and Korean fried chicken. Their style is all about fun, casual and approachable food, which is exactly what this book delivers.
Russell and Patrick co-produce and present the popular Chew the Fat podcast and also regularly contribute to the media landscape, from appearances on RTÉ radio and Newstalk to writing for the Irish Times, Lonely Planet, RTÉ Lifestyle and other publications, both in print and online. They are also brand ambassadors for the Boyne Valley Flavours region of food and drink producers and venues around their home area of Louth/Meath.
