4 Levels of French Fries: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of french fries. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which fries were the best?

                            Once I was cooking fries but I decided to be lazy and I didn't dry off the fries so they still had water, only problem was I was cooking them in oil so I almost burned down our kitchen for the second time-

                                          None of these looked very good, but I'd probably go with the Level 1 chef's fries. But give me some damn ketchup!

                                                    I stick the cut and seasoned potatoes into the oven and that's it. I don't do the water thing or use litters of oil, a simple drip of oil with salt and pepper is good enough. Maybe add a pinch of garlic powder if you are feeling fancy, but that's it. Their sauces all scare me, just use salsa, ketchup and/or string cheese.
