Grapes are the ultimate hand-to-mouth fruit, a wholesome snack that needs no peeling, slicing or coring. But for cooks looking to make an impression, grapes have other traits to exploit. They're juicy, so why not juice them? Grapes have abundant natural sugar, so why not roast them, or even fry them? Yes you can fry grapes and they make a compelling contrast of crisp and juicy in this vegetarian fritto misto. Chef Scott Samuel of the Culinary Institute of America was asked to develop some contemporary recipes with California table grapes. In this video Chef Samuel prepares his surprising Fritto Misto of Grapes, Fennel and Lemons with Lemon Crème Fraîche.
