WhilstLondon might just be getting on the fried chicken crack Dante has been serving up his fried chicken since 2001 when his KFC RIP fried chicken and biscuits loft parties became an integral part of NYC’s nightlife. Well now Dante is heading to London to launch his book Ride or Fry: The Dante Fried Chicken Experience .
The cookbook explores Dante’s ‘celebratory food’ philosophy that delves into over 100 of his signature dishes and his unorthodox background as a 13-year-old runaway from South Central, LA who worked his way up through the restaurant industry to opening an award-wining pop-up food truck and international Ride or Fry cook ups, bringing together food, music and art.
To celebrate the launch of the book there will be an installation and print exhibition that will bring the Ride or Fry experience to life on Thursday 4th April at 18 Hewett Street. The exhibition launch will also feature book readings from Dante, and the afterparty will be hosted by long time DFC collaborators Earnest Endeavours and Protein.
What’s more DFC will also be collaborating with Shay from The Rebel Dining Society with a guest chef residency at Death By Burrito from 11th to 13th April, and an all day brunch on the 14th April. Tickets for the brunch cost £20 and include a 3 course meal and entrance to the after party.
If you fancy attending the launch on Thursday 4th April RSVP now to RSVP@prote.in to make sure you get on the list. There’ll be Sock-it-to-me fried chicken with signature DFC apricot sauce on the night so make sure get down early.
