Kitchen Dictionary: french fry

french fry

Potatoes that have been cut into strips, soaked in cold water, blotted dry, then deep-fried to a crisp golden brown. They are not named for the country, but rather the method of cutting the potatoes -- "french" means to slice into thin strips. Matchstick-wide fries are called shoestring potatoes, and the very thick strips are called steak fries.

plural: french fries


Season: available year-round
