Chef Creates "Fried Air" And The Internet Has Lots Of Feelings

Ah, the fresh mountain air. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Take a deep breath and soak it all in, or, you know, take a bite.

People may joke about eating only air when they talk about diets, but one Michelin-star chef is making it happen. We just don't know if that's a good thing.

Renown chef Nicola Dinato has created what he hopes is a masterpiece, and he plucked his idea right out of thin air.

Made using a thin skin of tapioca, the chef injects what he calls "ozone" and fries it for 10 minutes. He says it gives his creation a sense of the outdoors and fresh mountain air.

It gives me a sense of confusion.

Dinato is the chef at Feva Restaurant in Italy. Being run by a Michelin-star chef means the meals are all delicious, mouth-watering, and expensive.

The puff of air is no exception, running a cost of about $30.

Not everyone seems game to shell out the money to pay for a tasty breath of fresh air. Comments on Facebook are comparing it to the bags of empty air, I mean chips, that Lay's sells. Others just shake their head at the price tag.

For what is basically fancy cotton candy, we think $30 is a bit steep, but if a ball of fried air appeared in front of me, I'm pretty sure I'd take a bite.

Would you eat fried air?
