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

  • Published on: 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?

    The way lvl 1 & lvl 2 chef are cutting is triggering me. Always guard your fingers with your nail- knuckle; we´re cutting potatoes not fingers.

    There is NO way you can mess up fries. There is never too much pepper, or salt. Just don't pour ketchup all across and on the fries..

    Where is the love for soggy fries? Growing up there was a place called Geri's Hamburgers (a 1950s nostalgia chain out of Beloit WI) that had the best fries ever. They came in a 1/2lb or full lb white paper bag. which would be soaked through by the time you got them home. The fries themselves were blond and limp, but the taste was heaven. No crispy fries ever tasted that good.

    Disfuckinggusting. French fries with apple sauce? Quit the video immediately. Honestly I'm unsubscribing to this crap. Who calls themselves a level (number chef) its artificial numbers and I don't even like the "level 3" option the best every time. The only intelligent part is the explanation of the techniques at the end but that isnt worth the agony of watching fake skill level "chefs" make fake skill level dishes and explaining why it's good when the flavor isnt even there every time. 0/10.
