A Thousand Tiny Details

Ooh, I miss really good chips. Swedes have not yet mastered the art of the crispy, creamy, truly delicious chip.

How hard can it be? Just chop up potatoes and fry them in oil. Simplest possible meal.

Except… well, maybe it’s a bit more complicated than that…

  • Which potatoes to use?
  • Chip size?
  • Chip shape?
  • Portion size?
  • Cooking time?
  • Cooking #times?
  • Cooking temperature?
  • Cooking oil type?
  • Cleanliness?
  • Cooling between vat and mouth?
  • And many more…

Even the simplest things are made up of a thousand tiny details.
