The Gravy Way to Celebrate National French Fry Day in Rochester!
French Fries may not have been invented in the United States of America (probably Belgium) but we here in the USA have certainly raised the French fry preparation to an artistic level. But, today I'm not suggesting .art, I'm suggesting great taste and comfort! For National French Fry Day, I present, Kick Your Fry Up One Time Gravy-Style!
You could visit any of the fine restaurants in Rochester and order fries, but for this taste sensation, I recommend Snappy Stop, McDonald's, Grandma's Kitchen, Charlie's Pub and Eatery, or Chester's.
At Grandma's Kitchen, Charlie's Pub and Eatery, or Chester's, just order the fries and a side of chicken gravy. If Chester's doesn't have chicken gravy, no worries, as for a side of béarnaise sauce (clarified butter emulsified in egg yolks and white wine vinegar and flavored with herbs...that's how they serve it up in St Paul at The Meritage and it's really good). Gravy or sauce, just dip the fry in the gravy in and take a bite.
WARNING: RESIST THE URGE TO POUR THE GRAVY OVER THE FRIES!
Some fries won't get as much gravy, and that would be a sad day indeed.
If you go to McDonald's or Snappy Stop, get an order of gravy to go (or buy a jar from the store) and eat 'em at home. This complicates things a bit, as you'll need to keep the fries warm in the oven while you heat the gravy (in a pan, the microwave'll mess up the flavor). It's still good, but not as good as having it delivered to your table. Ahhhh...pampering.
SPECIAL NFFD BONUS!
I just randomly ran across these pictures of something McDonald's serves in Japan, but not in the USA. Is that a good thing? Looks kinda ick to me, but I do like salty and sweet, so...
