There's nothing worse than ordering a deliciously greasy meal then when the fries come out soggy. There are a few tricks to help you reheat them perfectly!

If someone wishes to celebrate July 13's #NationalFrenchFryDay in a luxurious way, an iconic New York City restaurant has the answer in a world record-breaking way.

Serendipity3, located in the city's Upper East Side, set a Guinness World Records title for making the most expensive fries ever. Created by the restaurant's creative director and chef Joe Calderone and corporate executive chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert, the “Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites" cost an outstanding $200.

The restaurant received the record after an unbiased customer bought the plate, part of the Guinness World Records guidelines. Calderone told USA TODAY it took three months of planning to create the dish.

"It's easy to take expensive ingredients and just throw them together and call it an expensive dish. But we really like working on the science of the dish, as well as making it not only the most expensive but the best tasting in the world," he said.

The fries, which are made from Chipperbeck potatoes, are first blanched in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar before being cooked three times in pure goose fat from Southwest France.

After they are cooked, the fries are seasoned with Guerande truffle salt, which is hand-harvested from Guerande, France, and then tossed in Urbani summer truffle oil.

They are then topped with shaved pecorino tartufello cheese that is made of milk from sheep on the clay-rich hills of the Italian region of Crete Senesi. The fries are also topped with shaved black summer truffles from Umbria, Italy.

Served on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque plate, the fries are finally finished with 23K edible gold dust and a Mornay sauce on the side that is made with cream from A2 grass-fed Jersey cow and 3-month aged gruyere truffled Swiss raclette.

The popular restaurant, which reopened last Friday for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, is known for its lavish desserts and its famous "Frrrozen Hot Chocolate."

"We thought what a better way to celebrate our reopening than to attempt a new Guinness World Record," Calderone said.

Serendipity3 is no stranger to making world records. They've held 10 Guinness World Records, and still currently own the records for most expensive dessert ($25,000), most expensive sandwich ($214) and most expensive milkshake ($100). 

Calderone wouldn't say what world record the restaurant will attempt to break next, but, "close to the holidays, look out for another big announcement."

NYC Restaurant's French Fries Set Guinness World Record for Most Expensive

NBC New York 14 July, 2021 - 06:24am

If you are a foodie with quite a bit of change to spare, an iconic restaurant may have just the thing for you to celebrate #NationalFrenchFryDay.

Serendipity3, the iconic Upper East Side restaurant, set a Guinness World Record for making the “Most Expensive French Fries'' — just in time to celebrate National French Fry Day Tuesday.

Serendipity3’s creative director and chef Joe Calderone and corporate executive chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert are the masterminds behind the “Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites," which cost a whopping $200.

These exclusive fries are made from Chipperbeck potatoes blanched in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar. The fries are then cooked three times with pure goose fat from cage-free geese raised in Southwest France.

The process to create these elevated fries does not stop there. The fries are then seasoned with Guerande Truffle Salt which is hand-harvested from Guerande, France, and then the fries are tossed in Urbani Summer Truffle Oil. They are topped with shaved Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello made of milk from sheep that are grazed on the clay-rich hills of Crete Senesi and then black truffles foraged from valleys and forests in Volterra and Miniato, Italy are added. The fries are also topped with shaved Black Summer Truffles from Umbria, Italy.

The "Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites" are served with an accompaniment of Mornay sauce made with Udder Cream, Black Truffle Butter, and Gruyere Truffled Swiss Raclete.

The presentation is also quite the spectacle as the fries come on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque plate and bowl — and are sprinkled with 23K edible gold dust.

A look back at our favorite fast-food fries on National French Fry Day

Palm Beach Post 14 July, 2021 - 06:24am

It’s National French Fry Day, which means today you should skip the burgers, hot dogs and chicken sandwiches and just go straight for the greasy carb-loading. There are plenty of restaurants that have great fries — even a fancy French restaurant in Palm Beach — and we’d love to list them all, but we’re judging the fast-food and sandwich chains.

10. KFC. Their fries are thick and greasy, but maybe a little too greasy.

9. PDQ. We love the chicken tenders and fresh approach to food, but the fries are a little squishy.

8. Burger King. You go here for the burgers. They don’t call it “Home of The French Fry.”

7. Checkers. A greasy, guilty, late-night-when-no-one-is-looking pleasure, if that’s not redundant.

5. Wendy’s. Their natural-cut fries are thick and tasty. Secret ingredient: A sprinkling of sea salt.

4. BurgerFi. They win for the best fry-related name — the Cry and Fry, thick fries paired with onion rings and special sauce. A meal in itself.

3. Jon Smith Subs. Thin and crispy. They almost make you forget about the subs. Almost.

2. Chik-fil-A. Two words: Waffle fries! (Try them with a little packet of hot sauce.)

1. Five Guys. First off, they’re good, hot, and crispy. Second, they give you a MOUNTAIN of fries. Even if you get the small bag, they throw in an extra scoop. Do you want to make a meal out of French fries today? This is the place to go. (Don’t skip the side cup of malt vinegar, which adds to the carb high.)

This ranking is from a few years ago. Does it still stand? We want you to weigh in!
