On this week’s episode of U Look Hungry, Helen Hollyman is in the studio with fried chicken guru Dante Gonzales of Dante’s Fried Chicken. If you’ve been living in Williamsburg for a while, you might remember some of Dante’s parties at his Kent Avenue loft, where he fried chicken, invited musicians to perform, and screened films. Hear about how Dante got interested in cooking by helping his grandmother prepare meals as a child. Also, hear about another one of Dante’s fried chicken endeavors, Ride or Fry. Dante would fry chicken, and deliver it to people who happened to be in the know about his underground chicken business. Learn more about Dante’s branding and design, as well as his new food truck just outside of Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Hear about some of the places that Dante has traveled in the name of fried chicken, as well as his new book, Ride or Fry: The Dante Fried Chicken Experience. This episode has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

“A lot of people are caring about their food. The fact that farmers’ markets take EBT is amazing… I love to see a lot of people from different backgrounds being concerned about health.” — Dante Gonzales on U Look Hungry
