How to cook Perfect French Fries like in a restaurant – Best Chips

Some of the products I use and recommend: (affiliate)

Making French fries is certainly not rocket science but there are a lot of elements to consider in thriving for perfection. Firstly you want large oval shape potatoes for the best cuts. You want the right size, 1 centimetre or just under half an inch is the optimal size. Smaller and they will be too crisp with more oil, larger they will be too moist and mushy in the centre. You don’t have to use a ruler, it’s just a guideline, a little less or more won’t make any difference. For the oil, you can’t beat the taste of beef dripping, but for healthier reasons it’s best to use vegetables oils, I like Canola, peanut, sunflower oils. You can use the one you like, but the secret is that it has to be fresh. You can use it several times but the older it gets the faster it will reach smoking point resulting in darker fries with less crisp. Use a large pot and never fill the pot to more than half full. Use a good deep fryer that contains a large quantity of oil, otherwise make them in small batches to avoid the oil cooling down too quick once you add the fries. I have included a chili salt recipe to bring them to another level, but if you’re a purist at heart, then simply use a fine salt.
You can also blanch the fries then refrigerate or freeze for later use. But if you want them straight away, let them cool down before the second fry.

  • Ok! To much emphasis on size. I prefer some variation in size, some small brown and crispy and some big soft and fluffy and everything in between! Lets not over complicate French fries.

  • How do you make it so crispy and dry? I tried to replicate it but it didn't come out as crispy and was a little wet from the oil. (Still the best fries I've ever made though.)

    Micah Retief 20/10/2022 am12:45
