I'm an expert when it comes to fried potatoes. My dad loved them, and my mom cooked them at least once a day for the seventeen years I lived at home. Both my grandmothers cooked wonderful French fries. So did my mom. Still, I've never tasted better French fries than those cooked by my wife, Marilyn. She's stubborn and refuses to tell me how she does it. I'm going to watch her closely next time she makes them. I promise.
