    This was so boring! I thought they would be rated to see whose were best or at least taste each others fries or something. I don't care about the science behind a French fry.

    I wouldn't want to eat either one of these. They're fries! Why go through all that trouble? Onions, special sauces, brines? Whatever blows your hair back. I just put mine in the wok until they're browning, take them out and season them. Or once in a blue moon I'll make a beer batter for them.

    Ah right. French Fries has a lot of fat. By having anything that’s acidic, it will help break down the fat easily.

    I would think that starting fries in cold oil would result in more oil absorption. And can we stop calling home cooks "chefs"?

    as a lifelong cook, and former professional cook, every single one of those ladies WAY over did fries. I like steak fries (THICC BOIS) but you can shoelace if you like. Wash the fries, Blanch for 40 seconds to a minute starting when the oil reaches 350 degrees F. Cool Completely (you can freeze if you want to save them for later. fry at 350-400 depending on preference, just pay attention to your oil, 400 is very close to auto-ignition temperature (420-450 depending on the oil) Drain the oil off the fries, salt/season as desired. the only "sauce" I use is Fry Sauce, 50/50 mix of mustard and catsup with maybe a pinch of lowery's seasoned salt and powdered garlic. That's It. Fries Be Simple. don't over do it.

    Now I know how Italiens feel when Americans put pineapples on pizza and call pizza an American thing. All these fries look gross, but the “cold oil” method is by far the dumbest thing I have heard when it comes to fries.

    The pro chef doesn't understand what osmosis is. In osmosis the salt doesn't move, the water does.

    Palaks fries look wonderful but spending multiple days on fries is a no-go IMO. Bianca's fries with Khadija's queso would 100% be the go-to

    Lvl 1 fries must be nasty, you drop fries in already hot oil cos if you don't the fries absorb it and you get nasty fries 👀

    but osmosis is the movement of the water down the osmolarity gradient, not the movement of the salt, that is diffusion
