Indian Street Food: Potato Chips
I've been watching potato chip making videos for hours and they all sucked horribly. *Except this one!
Looks scary doesn't it? and he is not even looking at what he is doing.
Look closely and you can see that his fingers show no signs of previous wounds.
I think the key is that you don't really need a very sharp knife to do what he does.
I can't embed this video as it's not on a supported platform.
The technique that most impressed me about this video was how he did the "passing through oil" step. The narration describes it as marination and stirfry, but clearly it is not either of those.
Clearly the inventor had alot of time on his hands to think this one up, but honestly speaking, how cool is that ?
It's a Rob Higgs moving scupture in the long tradition of automatas present in both Western and Eastern cultures. Story here. You can hire it for parties, or buy it at £75,000 to £100,000. Sorry you didn't find it cool, Petals.
Anyway i won't buy the piece cause the wine touches a metal part while poured, a serious flaw!
Gutting a fish with chopsticks. This video may be considered graphic by some as it is gutting of a dead animal. But the technique is interesting. It seems to rely on disposable chopsticks as they have enough surface roughness to help hold on to things.
