Elevating Fried Chicken

As the price of beef continues to rise, fried chicken has become the new star, finding it’s calling in the southern comfort food market. In this article, Chef John Rivers discusses how The COOP’s menu is based on the comfort food he grew up eating and how the restaurant is “decorated like grandma’s kitchen.” He also explains the process he used when preparing the recipe for The COOP’s fried chicken, even mentioning how the packaging can effect the outcome of the chicken, “…if the chicken comes out perfect, most hot boxes use moisture, which works against crispness.” But don’t worry folks, Chef John Rivers found the perfect box and our fried chicken always stays fresh and crispy.
