What Not To Eat

One of my favourite cooks, for all the wrong reasons, is the American cook; Paula Deen. Paula is based in Savannah, in America's deep south, and her recipes reflect her heritage. She is a proponent of southern style 'home cooking'. The Paula Deen empire, and it is an empire - consisting of TV shows, cook books and restaurants, and healthy eating exist on two parallel planes, her food is not for the health conscious. I do get a kick out of some of her recipes simply because of the sheer indulgence factor and her blase approach to calories.  I also find her hugely entertaining.
This is a classic! She deep fries a full turkey. Although, apparently it is not that strange to deep fry large feathered animals in this part of the States, the deep fat fryer she uses is made especially for turkeys. I think the end result looks rather tasty too.
You should also check out some of her other classics; deep fried cheesecake, a lasagna sandwich or a burger topped with a fried egg and bacon served inside a DONUT. 
Yummy.......simply serve with a defibrillator.
