The “Reinvent a Classic” Challenge with Alexia Fries

I’ll admit that sometimes being a food blogger is tough work. Slaving over the stove each day, trying out new recipes, sampling this and that…all for you, our dear readers. For example, guess what challenge I am currently taxed with? Creating a new Fench fry flavor for Alexia foods! It is going to require day after day of creating and testing various flavors of fries trying to find the most unique and perfectly blended flavor combination to tempt your taste buds. Hard, grueling, difficult work, I tell ‘ya. I am willing to do it though because I want what’s best for everyone and their fry cravings. I’m such a giver that way.

Over the next few weeks, I, along with several other bloggers, will be getting busy in the kitchen trying out various seasonings and spices on Russet potatoes and sweet potatoes. I’ll work with different fry cuts and will begin narrowing down the choices until I have the perfect fry cut / flavor combination in hand. At that point I will hand my creation over to the judges who will determine if my fry creation is worthy of a top 4 spot, which means a trip to the Foodbuzz Festival in San Francisco.

So, to get my creative juices flowing, I’d love to know about the absolute best fry you’ve ever had. For me, I haven’t met a fry that beats the fries at the greatest Kansas City barbecue joint –  Oklahoma Joe’s. I go a little crazy for their fries.

  15. Hi Kristen,

    The most memorable fries I’ve had were in San Fran, belgium-styled with a huge galoop of fresh chopped garlic. It was slightly dangerous, but awesome at the same time! Love your photos. The dark backdrop really makes the fries pop. Congrats!

    Recently I had the parmesean garlic fries from Red Robin (they’re not on the menu anymore, but they can still do them!) and they were delicious! I liked the amount of garlic, but would have preferred a little less oil. Too greasy! I also love sweet potato fries, from anywhere, yummmmm!!

  17. the best fries I ever tasted were home made…by me! but that is a TON of work (peeling, slicing, slicing, slicing, parboiling, coating in oil, salting, baking, eating, etc. and that is just a side dish!). If these are as good as they look, I would LOVE to try them!!!

  18. The props in the first picture look great.The potato experiment sounds so much fun but I hear ya on slaving infront of the store.I think I LOVE curly fries at Jack in the Box – too good!

  19. Sounds like you guys are having a fun time with this project! Herbs and sea salt, herbs and sea salt!

  20. Mmm these look so delicious and I love your picture!! So glad I came across your blog, I love it!!
