While you already know that Warren is the Chief Pie Officer of our house, he also has the enviable title of Fry Daddy. Because French fries are his jam. Every potato he touches turns into golden fried pieces of awesome. Over the past few years, he has perfected his crispy fry recipe and was more than happy to take on the challenge of producing devourable Bistro Fries.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that he completed his mission successfully. The only downside to Warren’s fry mastery is that he has become a total French fry snob. He used to be satisfied with a plate of sad frozen fries baked in the oven but now he will only eat the best. I’m okay with that. Especially if I get to taste test batch after batch of these babies.

The secret to crispy fries is three-fold: 1) soak cut potatoes in ice water for an hour to wash away all the starch 2) use peanut oil for frying and 3) double deep fry potatoes to get that crispy exterior and fluffy interior. These guidelines have never failed us.

HERBED BISTRO FRIES
  • 3 pounds red potatoes cut into 1/4-inch wedges
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh thyme
  • kosher salt for sprinkling
  • peanut oil for deep-frying (enough to be 3-inches deep in a fryer or heavy pot)
Place potato wedges in a large bowl of ice water. Let it sit for an hour to get all the starch off (this will help the potatoes fry to crisp perfection). Scoop the potatoes out and onto a baking tray lined with paper towels. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep fryer or large heavy pot (over medium heat) to about 250 degrees.
You will be double deep frying the wedges in batches. Fry the wedges the first time until tender but have no color. Drain on paper towels. While the first round of frying cools, reheat oil to about 350. Then fry the wedges again (in batches) until golden grown. Drain on paper towels and toss with herbs and salt. Serves 4.
