The science of fast food?

I’m not big on fast food, but when they’re not slathered in salt, those thin crispy fries that are characteristic of fast food places are tasty. The problem is that you have to get off your butt, go to the nearest place that carries them, and order your starchy goodness. Mine happens to be Wendy’s, with McDonald’s another minute down the road. Then you can dip your newfound discovery in your condiment of choice and enjoy.

But what if you didn’t have to get out of the house just for fries? Many people have tried to make the perfect fry that resembled the thin fast food fry, and finally someone succeeded. This is the nerdiest look at food that I’ve ever read, and it’s well worth the read, even if you have to go to a separate page for the recipe. The writer obtains frozen fries from a fast food place, inspects the fries, and designs a recipe for the perfect fry. If I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that you can’t order frozen fries from a fast food place. There goes my plan.
