As I sit here pondering the next french fry recipe that we’ll be working on this weekend I can’t help but wonder “What comes first?“. Sort of like “What comes first? The chicken or the egg?”
What came first when the chefs at Alexia were creating some of their scrumptious french fry recipes? Did they choose the type of potato or the flavor combo first? The cut of the french fry or the catchy name?
Fortunately for the guys and I we are newbies at playing around with french fry recipes. Spending time in the kitchen together making batch after batch of french fries, trying them and making some more is definitely the approach for us. Then again too many chefs in the kitchen can be an issue. Right now we’re torn down the middle and trying to determine which recipe we will end up submitting. Will the savory combo win over the sweet one? Will waffle fries win the day or will the wedge trump it? Will we scratch everything that we have tried so far and start fresh? Who knows either way we are throughly enjoying the process.
Part of what I am enjoying the most with Alexia’s Reinvent a Classic French fry challenge, other than trying all of their different flavors, is that you guys can play along and give us ideas. So keep them coming y’all! You have me thinking outside of the box with some of your suggestions so far. Seriously keep sending across ideas, the monkeys are bound and determined to try each and everyone this summer. I will be shooting up a flare by August 25th.
While the boys and I continue to make a mess in the kitchen for the pure fun of it why don’t you check out some of the other participants that are having fun being creative this month with french fries.
When you’re creating a new recipe what comes first for you?
Love ya bunches!
