The Hot Chicken Project is more than the sum of its parts. Yes, it’s a cookbook, but it’s also a narrative, a photographic celebration and most importantly, it’s Aaron Turner’s love letter to his obsession. This book is about immersing yourself into the world of hot chicken. So, to plunge you into this journey along with Aaron, we have a fun offer.

Order the book from us and send your receipt or a screenshot of your order confirmation to hotchickenproject@hardiegrant.com and get a secret Spotify playlist curated by Aaron Tuner sent straight to your inbox.

On this playlist, you will hear hits such as Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band, My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It by Tim Timebomb, Fried Chicken & Evil Women by Vincent Neil Emerson, and many more. This playlist will not only give you a peek into the brains of Aaron Turner, it will also set the mood to your next hot chicken adventure whether you’re searching for, cooking, eating, or digesting the dish.


 

 

For acclaimed Australian chef Aaron Turner, hot chicken isn’t just food – it’s salvation in crispy, fried and devilishly spicy form. In The Hot Chicken Project, he travels back to Nashville, the place of its birth, to pay his respects to the makers, to chart the love and obsession that has shaped his world, and to make sure that what he does back home is doing it justice. Part cookbook, part pilgrimage, The Hot Chicken Project is both an epic love letter to the fiery bird and a celebration of a way of life that is in danger of vanishing forever.

The Hot Chicken Project is part recipe book (40 recipes covering the best mains, sandwiches, sides, salads and sauces), part narrative, part pictorial celebration of the history and power hot chicken holds over the city of Nashville – and now beyond (including Melbourne!). 

It frames the stories of the people and families and communities who have cooked and eaten and appropriated it in Nashville over several generations. It offers a loud, opinionated take-no-prisoners perspective on food culture in the US (and beyond) today, as well as being an incomparable how-to manual for the VERY best hot chicken and accompaniments – wherever you are.
