Woman says using a $400 hair dryer is the key to perfectly roasted chicken

A food critic has stunned fans with her unusual way of roasting a chicken.

Helen Rosner, a food writer for the New Yorker, took to Twitter to upload a photograph of herself blow-drying a whole chicken with a $400 Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. She revealed to Allure, “For crisp skin, whether you’re cooking a chicken or a duck or a fish, you want there to be as little water moisture as possible, which is sped up by a fan. And that’s all a hair dryer really is — a handheld fan that you can pretty easily bring into the kitchen.”
