Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: French / American
Serves: 4 - 6
  • 4 russet potatoes, peeling them is optional, scrubbed clean
  • Oil, for frying (Wagyu, Peanut, Canola, Vegetable)
  • Finishing salt (Truffle salt is excellent, but coarse sea salt, or Kosher salt will work, too).
  1. Using a mandolin (on the French fry setting), or a sharp knife, cut each potato into French fry sticks,
  2. Place cut fries in an ice bath for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oil to 330 F. (Oil should only be about 2 inches deep, and there should be at least 4 inches above the oil to the top of the vessel).
  4. Completely dry potatoes in kitchen towel.
  5. Working in batches, carefully add potatoes to oil, and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, until light beige in color. Remove from oi onto paper towels. Fries at this point will be translucent and a little limp (this can be done several hours before the next and final fry).
  6. Once all the fries are cooked, raise the oil temperature to 365 F.
  7. Working in batches, fry the potatoes again, until golden brown and crispy...about 4 to 6 minutes.
  8. Remove immediately from oil onto paper towels.
  9. Sprinkle salt all over the fries.
  10. Serve at once! Enjoy!
