Bad days are best forgotten over a hot basket of French fries.
These heavenly deep-fried potatoes are God's way of telling his chosen people to kick back and have some unapologetic FUN.
Although the origin of the fry is somewhat of a mystery (they’re definitely not French), their presence in the culinary world is a fine example of quintessential fast food. From the smallest take-outs to Michelin-star restaurants, there’s hardly any place that can survive without them.
So obviously, the question on every fast-food addict mind (yes, that’s us) is what exactly makes for a perfect fry?
There's that crisp exterior — for sure. Not greasy or soggy. Then, the soft, fluffy interior, filled with a potato that's cooked through but not dried out or raw-tasting.
The colour also comes into play — the best fries have that mouthwatering golden-brown hue. When all of these elements come together, they create the perfect fry, no condiments necessary.
