Stop what you’re doing because this episode is an Ultimate Fusion Chef Battle! Drawn at random, our Chefs were given two cuisines that they must fuse together in a cooking battle. Ben was given German and Vietnamese, while James was given Peruvian and Filipino. Sounds easy, right...?
We'd love you to come and hang out with us on Instagram at 4.30pm every week day where our chefs will be on hand to answer any foodie questions you have at this time and just create a fun place for us to all be together.

    I loved the way James cooked that chicken - I think I'm going to have to try that, it looked so so yummy. I usually get notified of new vids, this one must have slipped through the net as only found today - but given I'm still in lockdown in Kildare in Ireland, I'll have plenty of time to give it a go or two. Cheers lads, hope you're all still safe & well (and everybody else watching out there of course) in these rather strange times. New cooking ideas is something that really helps to focus the mind, forget about what's going on in the world for a few hours and learn something new - it's a win win win :-) Must love & respect from a currently very rainy Ireland

    Ben. Bavaria is not all there is to Germany. They don't even want to be part of it and tbh we could do without them too. That was a mix of vietnamese and Bavarian more than vietnamese and German. Snd as Bavarian is just that much closer to Austrian than German I'd actually say, you failed the challenge. Or at least lost it by going for stereotypes

    Skip the fusion, that is as common as missing socks on laundry day! Try something historical (pre 1492) or somewhat original (that I haven't seen on 2 other cooking channels when you are 1 of 3 I watch). Yes, only you, Townsends, and Bon Apetit. There are a couple other channels that show cooking, like Souped Up Recipes that I recently discovered, but I have watched you for YEARS! You are not impressing me any more. You started all these weird "competitions" that the majority egged on, but I was never a fan. I have to look up the recipes on other sites now that you have your "club". Keep lowering your boundaries, and I will give up. You won't miss me, you get plenty of praise from people with very low expectations. Again, you won't miss me, but I will miss the old you, when you were still fun. I don't think I will make it past June 2020 if you keep putting money over quality. Mostly, I will miss Ben and Mike, because I really liked them. I learned to like Jamie, James, and Barry later, and will miss them, too, but mostly Mike and Ben. Maybe wish me a silent "good luck" when you next make a video for profit and not for education/fun. That will be my "good bye" and I wish you all well, but you are now too much about money for me to afford.

    Came late to the party, but as a Filipino well-versed in the traditional cuisines in the provinces, James did an absolutely bangin' job (did I get that right? hahaha) on that chicken adobo. Most people would argue that term adobo has Hispanic origins, but the practice of cooking in vinegar is actually already common in pre-colonial Philippines, for it is shown to preserve shelf-life of cooked food. The use of soy sauce has been introduced by the Chinese traders before the Spanish era. On their arrival, the term adobar was coined because of the similarity of the marinade used by the colonizers, which eventualy stuck and thus the name of the dish today . As James pointed out, what he did to cooking the chicken was untraditional, but not uncommon at all in Ph. It is well realized here that adobo can be cooked is as many different ways as there are households, each having their own version of cooking. What you can try is to cook the chicken in low heat in the braising liquid until dry so to infuse all the liquid flavors to the meat. The frying though was a wonderful idea to add that crispy texture to the skin, a part of the chicken a lot of Filipinos love. The way he described chicharrones, what we know here in Ph is "chicharon", the most widely available is with the pork rind version. The usual procedure done here is to season pork skin in salt then dry them out in the sun for a couple of days, then fry them in hot oil which will result to a puffy and very crispy state. Very good but very unhealthy snack usually eaten with a spiced vinegar condiment and with beer.

    Nice and interesting fusion of Filipino and Peruvian but as a Filipino myself, I have seen and tasted already a couple of different versions of adobo and my suggestion is that James could use sugar cane vinegar or just a regular vinegar and use it just to balance out the saltiness of the soy sauce. The sourness should not be overpowering and that every flavor/taste should be tasted. The sourness, the saltiness and a little kick from the spices. Also, a cup of red rice on the side wouldn't hurt coz a Filipino meal should have rice 😊👌🏻. Lastly, about the Banana "Catsup" thing, it's still pronounced as Ketchup guys 😅 we just spelled it differently just for "fun" 😂 anyway, good job guys and good job James! Hope that all of the Sorted Food Family and Team are all safe and sound. Take care guys! Much love all the way from the Philippines! 🇵🇭💗

    I'm so happy that James did the banana catsup, because whenever I tell my Western friends about using bananas in ketchup, I'm usually faced with either laughter or "wtf you shouldn't put bananas in ketchup." But it's honestly really nice, sort of sweeter than regular tomato ketchup and a bit milder. It's not as sour, too. Also imo, a lot of Filipino snacking food benefit more from banana catsup than tomato ketchup, like lumpia and other fried snacks.
