I often passed on making French fries at home because the recipes were more effort than I want, but these fries from Smitten Kitchen are about the easiest recipe I have come across and they are delicious: easiest french fries – smitten kitchen.
So read the recipe, then get yourself some neutral oil and some yellow flesh potatoes (e.g. Yukon Gold) and make some!
Nigella has a similar recipe here, but with some garlic and herbs. Also good, but I love the smitten kitchen recipe best.
I see steak frites, hotdogs and fries, or mussels and frites in your future.
