Took almost an hour to cook completely. The oven roasted chicken came out damn good. The root vegetables were roasted to perfection with the fat dripping from the chicken.
Full chicken on a tray with root vegetables underneath, before it's roasted in an oven.
Trying Thomas Keller’s Oven Roasted Chicken Recipe. 24 hours in a spices + salt brine solution. Then air dried in refrigerator for 3 days. And now, all decked up with root vegetables underneath. Into the oven it goes at max heat (to be reduced after 20mins).

This was a great read. Pretty emotional towards the end. I wish the author would explore more about the Aryan race stuff mentioned in the article. Maybe a followup? I think this has a lot of connections with the caste system that thrives in Indian culture, no matter where in the world they are.
