For the love of the spud
As history goes, the potato chip was accidentally invented way back in 1853, when a chef at a resort in New York was trying to please a dinner guest. The guest complained that his french fries were too thick. The chef and guest went back and forth several times until finally, the frustrated chef made the fries so thin, the result was what we’d recognize today as a potato chip! The chips were a hit, lucky for us!
