VideoRecipe: Italian Style Tempura with Acqua Ferrarelle

Dear Friends and Easters,

I don’t fry often because it is not the healthiest was to cook but I had to make an exception this time. I heard that Ferrarelle, Italy’s most famous sparkling water, was about to make a jump across the pond. See we need to set the score straight here: other sparkling waters are not necessarily Italian in spite of their name.  You want to go for the Real Italian Deal for a delicate recipe like this.  The tempura batter is more complex than it looks because there is a little chemistry that goes into it.  Along with the baking powder, it is the sparkling water to give lightness and crispy texture to this tempura.  The recipe is simple enough and I hope you use it for all your fried seafood and veggies!
