Book Description

When the food is good, the party starts cooking! Media wunderkind and award-winning chef Dante Gonzales has fed some of the world's most popular celebrities--including Demi Moore, Theophilus London, and Santigold--at underground parties as well as red-carpet events. He also takes the party to the streets in the Ride or Fry food truck and around the world with his Ride or Fry pop-up stand, celebrated in this innovative cookbook of more than 100 fresh, delicious, recipes (including his signature Fried Chicken). Packed with innovative, eco-conscious meals (with many vegetarian and vegan options), his grandmother's heirloom dishes, and contributions from Dante's musical and culinary collaborators, this book is the only way to bring the Dante Fried Chicken experience into your own home.

Product Description


“Blending African, European, and indigenous American traditions, Gonzales (a chef and artist known for pop-up events and his Ride or Fry food truck) creates extreme dishes that defy categorization. His Credit Crunch Fried Chicken is marinated and battered in over a dozen ingredients, including lemon zest, potato starch, beer, and Sriracha hot sauce. Other recipes (e.g., Island Smothered Tofu, Root Up! Slaw, Orange Coconilla Pie) are similarly extravagant and, as Gonzalez notes, best for special occasions and celebrations. VERDICT A bold cookbook for the reader who likes creative spice blends and abundant vegan options.” --Library Journal

About the Author

Dante Gonzales is a filmmaker, chef, and party promoter whose mission is to infuse everything he does with his signature fusion approach to cuisine. Dante's food is always the centerpiece of his parties, which combine his unique culinary voice with the vibrant music and art scenes of New York, Los Angeles, London, and Berlin.

Dante was raised in his grandmother's kitchen, learning the recipes she once served to jazz royalty. Her eclectic fare was prepared using whole, natural, and fresh ingredients. When money was scarce, she found alternatives to traditional ingredients; for example, in the absence of fresh flour, Grandma Jean would stretch her breading mix with ground oats and leftover crumbs (of many varieties!). Dante has spent the last ten years perfecting this heirloom cuisine while curating scene-defining live events around the globe. As a result, he has a massive online presence, and he and his food are frequently featured in print and on TV.

Today, the growing popularity of Dante Fried Chicken's food ventures, video blogs, and parties has translated into the breakout success of his international culinary career. His food truck, Ride or Fry, was featured on the Cooking Channel's hit show Foodography, and received notable critical acclaim with features in New York Magazine, Eater.com, and NY and LA Grubstreet, among others. In 2011, Ride or Fry won the coveted Best Food Truck in LA from Thrillist.com. Dante lives, cooks it up, and makes the scene in Los Angeles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing recipes Oct. 24 2012
By Nick Goodfellow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dante is amazing and his food is an extension of his amazingness. The book is full of recipes that will make you thankful for the ability to taste and smell. The directions are way easy to follow and he's got plenty of helpful tips and tricks throughout the book to ease and make sense of cooking (especially for the culinarily-impaired like myself). I've attended several Dante Fried Chicken events and each time am just amazed that food can be so flavorful with such seemingly random ingredients and combinations. Dante's philosophy on food, how its grown, prepared, and served, makes this more than just a cookbook but a look inside the mind of a genius chef.
I highly recommend this book to those who like food. For those that don't, read the book and learn something.

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended Jan. 26 2014
By Roberto Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Ride or Fry is a awesome addition to anyone's kitchen. My confession is that about a year ago me and my girlfriend had an amateur cooking contest at our house and your recipes, tips were a big inspiration which gave us 1st place. I am Puerto Rican but am also a student of the diaspora and its foods. Love that these tastes are very familiar. Not only to me. but are familiar to many. I really enjoy your creativeness. Keep up all the great work Dante.
