Hot Fat by Russell Alford and Patrick Hanlon

Ever since I first heard that this book was in the works, I’ve been in a ferment of excitement. I know that air fryers are extremely popular these days, but I share with the authors here a belief that hot fat (rather than hot air) is where it’s at! I bought myself an electric deep-fat fryer as a present in 2020, and it has brought consequent delight. So this most definitely is the book for me. And I just love it, from the glorious cover on. It’s a small book, but one which brings huge pleasure: Black Pudding Scotch Eggs; Potato Pavé; Korean Fried Chicken; Frickles (fried pickles, natch); Bacon and Cheese Croquettes; and, of course, chips are some of the joys within. But the recipe I had to share with you today is the Lasagne Bites, which are particularly popular in my house! And here they are, in their deep-golden glory, as cooked by me at home.
