  1. One thing I’ve learned living in Blighty is that the best chips are cooked twice.

  2. What Kristin said, except that I learned it by living in the true home of the “French” fry (italics ironic). Fry them twice! Let them rest a good long while, overnight even, after the first frying. And if you want to really crank it up, fry them in any sort of rendered poultry fat you can get your hands on.
