Wes Anderson Is Possibly the Best Director Alive

Director Wes Anderson’s latest movie, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” is in theaters right now, but his unique filmography is well worth watching in entirety. Anderson has released eight full-length films. He tends to re-use actors: the Wilson brothers, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman show up in nearly every one of his movies, his films’ scores are all written by either Alexandre Desplat or Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh, and once he snags an actor, it is likely that actor will show up again in a later film, even if only in a cameo role. While the subject matter varies widely, his movies share a fascinating cinematographic style and a quirky, funny, slightly dark but heartwarming mood.

Most of the ingredients for this recipe are easy to come by and it is possible they might already be in the kitchen. Unfortunately, because of the fact that it was entirely made up on the spot, there are no specific measurements for the ingredients.

Cooking Corner - Spicy Fried Chicken Picture

Spicy Fried Chicken

After a long day of work, there are few things that compare to a cold stiff drink and some homemade fried chicken. The defining characteristic of chicken as a protein in a meal is how mild the taste is, which lends itself well to being breaded, as is the case in fried chicken. Because chicken is a mild taste it can also have a range of spices added to it without overwhelming it. This recipe aims to combine these two ideas in a delectable, crunchy shell. Makes four pieces.
