Concessionaires at the Los Angeles County Fair have gotten creative with their deep fried foods – serving everything from deep-fried cupcakes to deep-fried frog legs. Bob checks his calorie counter at the gate to enter in the Fair’s Deep Fry Contest – a contest where fairgoers judge each ven¬dor’s entry on originality, taste and appearance. Bob learns that deep frying is no easy feat – finding the right batter, the right combination of salty and sweet, and the right oil temperature to avoid a melted mess takes hours of trial and error. He hops in his vegetable oil fueled car to test out his deep-fried experiments on his neighbors in L.A., making a pit-stop to explore the art of tempura at a Japanese restaurant on the way. Will Bob’s fried creation hold up on contest day, or will he be up to his elbows in grease?
