Throw in a surprise visit by the queen of gluttonous fried and buttery cuisine, Paula Deen, and you know some entertaining commentary is going to is going down.

Shrager and Sussman reminisced about their research and travels for their soon-to-be-released cookbook (it comes out in May) Fried & True: More than 50 Recipes for America's Best Fried Chicken and Sides while Oldman paired wines with each dish.
