Thank You, George Crum!


Today in History, August 24: 1853 – Saratoga Springs, New York. Annoyed by a patron continuously complaining about his potatoes, Chef George Crum sliced the potatoes as thinly as possible, then deep fried them and salted them. He was surprised to find the patrons raving about how good they were. Thus was born the potato chip. Millions of chubby people like me thank you, George.
