About me

Gender Male
Industry Engineering
Occupation Houston Food Explorer
Location Houston, Texas, United States
Introduction The primary intent of the Houston Food Explorers Blog is to find and report on the Houston food scene: dining, cooking, markets, etc. The primary intent of the Fried Chicken Blog is to document the annual fried chicken picnics down by the churches in the German/Czech area of Central Texas. There are bits and pieces on the 'net about chili con carne and about fried chicken batters, dry ingredients, etc. But, with respect to fried chicken, there isn't a really good website that has investigated ratios and their effect on the end product. So this is my opportunity to test and report on my experiments.
Interests Fried Chicken, All Eras of Music, Cooking, Food History, Mexican and Tex-Mex (I consider myself, in all modesty, to be something of an 'expert' on Mexican food)
Favorite Movies You can find me on Facebook with a section of photos of different food experiments that I have done
Favorite Music For purposes of this blog, Tom Faulkner's Fried Chicken Skin Song
Favorite Books For purposes of this blog, John T Edge's "Fried Chicken", Donald Link's "Real Cajun", books by Robb Walsh such as 'The Tex-Mex Cookbook', 'Legends of Texas Barbecue', 'Texas Eats', 'The Chili Cookbook'
