Let’s picture this. No, we all are still adjusting to the presidential election. Instead, picture Snoop Lion and Martha Stewart being a couple. This may be hard to envision, but they are together on their own VH1 show, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. This unusual television show aired on Monday night.
Match Made in Kitchen
The co-hosts placed a lot of emphasis on fried chicken. The pair prepares food together, but struggle to agree how to prepare the chicken or even when to eat it. Stewart attempts to do some things that Snoop isn’t quite use to. Although, he probably doesn’t cook his own food, Snoop knows a thing or two about cooking from meals with his family, growing up. Stewart recommends to Snoop that they must bathe their bird, before actually cooking it. Along with bathing the chicken in ice water, it has to be done two days before the meat is actually cooked. For snoop, all he needs is potato chips and white flour.
History of Fried Chicken
Along with her unique cooking methods, Stewart also educates Snoop by telling him where fried chicken originated. We learn that the Scottish immigrants were the first to prepare the deep-fried white/dark meat. It wasn’t until the 18th century that the dish was introduced to the 13 colonies of America. From this point, the Black Americans took over. At the time, the Blacks were slaves and responsible for preparing food. As they continued to prepare chicken, the slaves began to alter and create their own recipe. This led to a more improved way to cook chicken. The biggest difference was that Blacks actually seasoned their food. Believe it or not, the Scottish immigrants thought bland chicken was delicious. It goes to that saying that everything taste better fried. Snoop made sure that Martha got it right and said, “That’s right. It was African! Americans, who took the bland ass chicken and made that thing do what it do.”
