I got a note from James, team leader and fry-guy at the Dewey Square truck.
“We served Alton Brown at DWY Square today. I wasn’t positive til I checked his FB and twitter feed when I got home. Really cool. Good Eats made me love cooking.”
Alton, thanks for braving the cold for those fries! We know you’re not from New England! If you want the recipe for the fries, here you go:
1. Cut a potato into quarter-inch fry. We use Chef Potatoes from Hatfield, MA or Prince Edward Island. Cover with water. Soak for 15 minutes.
2. Fry in deep-fryer at 375 degrees for 5 minutes, or until stiff but not over-cooked. Fry should break easily in your hand. Shake fry basket once or twice. Pick a large sprig of fresh rosemary, and add to fry basket. Fry for a few more seconds.
3. Let drain for at least 30 seconds. In a large bowl, toss with Kosher salt to taste. Serve and eat immediately.
