The Fried Chicken & Champagne cookbook ($25) by Lisa Dupar initially sparked our interest because we're forever splurging on champagne despite our fried chicken budget. Also, noshing on a fried chicken leg whilst sipping champagne sounds like a fantastic way to spend an evening. We haven't been disappointed. Not only is the fried chicken recipe fan-friggin-tastic, all the other recipes we've tried are, too. Seriously, we're about to slurp up leftover albondigas soup for lunch and can barely wait!
