Invention of Potato Chips

Invention of Potato Chips

There was once a chef named George Crum who worked in resort in Saratoga Springs, New York. He was a pretty good chef. It was one of the usual days for chef Crum in his kitchen making the best dishes his resort was known for the French fries. He was making fries for a customer and when those fries frites the customer’s table he didn’t quite like it.

He said that the fries were too thick. Poor chef Crum took those fries, cut them thinner and serve them again but nope the customer didn’t like it again.

This way Crum angry cut the fries paper-thin and let them fry oil till they turned crisp and brown and then added lots of salt to teach the customer a lesson and when he served that to customer, he loved it! This gave birth to the potato chips. They were known as the Saratoga chips. Soon people started making and selling potato chips and they spread all over the world.

Even though they are called French Fries they are not friends. According to some stories the origin of French fries goes back to the villages of Belgium where people used to fry small fishes to cut from the rivers but during winters the rivers would freeze making it almost impossible for them to catch any more fish so they turned to the potatoes. They would slice and fry potatoes just like how they fried fish and that’s how French fries came into being.

Did you know, a packet of potato chips has more air than the chips because it is filled with nitrogen to keep the chips fresh and prevents them from breaking. Also, a Californian woman named Laura Scudder was known as the Potato Chip Queen because she was the first one to come up with the idea of putting potato chips in packets.
