French Fry Blogs

Although there aren't man sites on the internet which chronicle chip trucks, there are a few devoted to the art of the french fry (e.g. The French Fry Blog or I Heart French Fries!) Great french fries can be made at restaurants other than chip trucks. But for me, the chip truck experience is about more than just the fries. It's about the roadside ambiance, the anticipation as the fresh cut fries cook, the opportunity to spray malt vinegar out of a spray bottle. Maybe it's a bit like being the kind of person who will go to the movie theatre to see anything, just because they enjoy the act of going to the theatre. Although the fries are certainly central, for me, there's more to chip trucks.


  1. So true, Nora. And to ME...there's also more to potatos than a simple Yukon Gold. A while back, I posted a recipe for the perfect sweet-potato fry (or kumura, for those of you reading this in the South Pacific).

    insert shameless plug here:

    love your blog, I'm a huge fan.

  2. Interestingly, the chip truck on the Trent campus offers sweet potato fries. Antecdotally, I've heard that they're pretty good, but I have yet to try them (it's definitely on my list!).
