Thai chef Kann 'Superhands' Trichan raises the temperature in his makeshift kitchen by abandoning traditional kitchen tools in favour of using his fingers.
He scoops out the red-hot pieces of chicken deep fat frying in front of stunned customers and somehow avoids life-long injuries.
There are no blisters and no burns.
Kann, 50, can even sieve fried chicken with his fingers and holds the Guinness Book of World Record for picking 20 pieces of fried chicken out of 480C (896F) boiling fat in one minute.
"When I put my hands into the oil it feels hot but it doesn't burn or blister my skin," said Kann, from the northern city of Chiang Mai.
"I can fry rice, chicken, and many things with just my bare hands."
Dad-of-two Kann discovered his unique talent seven years ago when he was unharmed after being accidentally splashed with hot oil thanks to a squirrel.
It knocked a mango out of a tree which landed in the oil and covered his head, arms and hands.
"It should've seriously hurt me," he said.
"I remember looking in the mirror, expecting to see blisters and red blotches but there was nothing."
Kann started experimenting by picking out pieces of fried chicken from a pan of hot fat.
"The people were loving it," said Kann.
"They'd never seen anything like it before. People were coming from all over just to buy my chicken and watch me spoon it out with my hands."
Over the last seven years Kann has become an international star and travelled the world with his wife, Tuan, 45, showcasing his skills.
His daughter, Supalak, 34 and son Jessada, 27, couldn't be prouder.
"We never get bored of watching him, it's amazing," said Jessada.
