Well, I used to say that I am never going to own a deep fryer, but then I changed my mind. Simply, because I discovered those gorgeous looking pommes frites in Anthony Bourdain's book. Though once in a while I made french fries, but I never really bothered about the exact temperature of the oil. I should have! I must confess that these fries are highly addictive and definitely worth the effort!
4 large potatoes
Peel and cut potatoes in sticks and place in a bowl filled with ice water for at least 30 minutes or over night. After wash it again under running water and dry with a help of a kitchen cloth. Heat the deep fryer to 140°C and fry potatoes in small portions for 6-8 minutes. Let them cool for 15 minutes while heat the deep fryer to 190°C. Now it is time for the second frying for 2-3 minutes. Place a kitchen cloth into a bowl, add fries on it, sprinkle with salt, remove the cloth and shake it for a moment or two. Serve immediately.
