Chef Vincent Thomas of the Chef D'lites just called to share the deep fried delights he has planned for this year's N.C. State Fair. (He did the deep-fried cookie dough a few years back that I still crave.)
Anyway, Thomas says he has three new offerings:
- chicken-fried bacon, which is deep-fried bacon, no breading, with dipping sauces like honey mustard or ranch
- deep-friend banana split, which is a deep-fried banana served over ice cream and toppings.
- deep-fried sampler, which has the deep-fried bacon and deep-fried macaroni and cheese.
Here is a link to the N.C. State Fair Web site.
Fifty-five days to go!
