A delicious truffle parmesan fries recipe to try frying fear-free!

Scared of frying? Fear no more! Chef Matt Dean Pettit shares some techniques to make frying approachable and a delicious truffle parmesan fries recipe to practice with.
“It’s crisp!”



  1. Start with about 1 ½ pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes. About three medium or two large.
  2. Clean and cut potatoes into 1/4 inch fries (thin frites cut) Very easy with a mandolin or use a sharp chef’s knife: no need to peel or soak in water after cutting.
  3. Add fries to a Dutch oven or another large pan with high walls.
  4. Cover the fries with the oil.
  5. Place over high heat and do not cover the pan. When it reaches a hard boil (about 5 minutes), cook for an additional 5-8 minutes without touching it; after using tongs or a wooden spoon, stir and scrape the bottom to release any stuck fries and to break apart any clumped fries.
  6. Place into a large bowl lined with multiple paper towels to drain. Salt to taste. Garnish with parm cheese and chives!
