August is one of the hottest months in Hong Kong, and also when we find ourselves craving crispy, crunchy food. This month, we’ve dedicated this issue of Crave to everything fried. We speak to three of Hong Kong’s top tempura chefs about making light, delicate fried seafood and vegetables. In Feature, there’s everything you need to know about frying: six ways to fry, which oil to cook with when and the ingredients that go into the perfect batter. And there is no fried issue without fried chicken, of course. Don’t miss our guide to fried chicken around the world, in which we cover everything from glazed Korean fried chicken to Taiwan’s yan su ji.
