If you dont salt chips straight away the salt just falls off. The cafe where I go regularly toss their chips in sea salt, pepper and parsley, very nice. Not sure what oil they cook in but it has a really nice flavour. It could be olive but Im not sure.

Mcdonalds chips always leave me feeling sick!

MMMM.. that sounds good.. i have done them up a few times with rosemary lemon zest salt.   awesome.... I just added some fresh rosemary and lemon zest into mortar with 5-6 times as much Grey sea salt and ground it up til it was a consistency to sprinkle on the fries.   Thick cut , crispy fried deep brown .. about as different from Rotten Ronnies. as you can get..  Thankfully..

That sounds nice Ashen, wouldnt of thought of lemon zest with chips.

What do people think of McDonalds getting some meals approved by the heart foundation?
I think its pathetic. An example is a chicken burger, bottle of water and an apple. I would call that a very substantial meal.

Re: How do you make McDonald's-type fries?

Someone was telling me the other day that the tick doesnt mean what most of us think it does....

Apparently it doesnt have to mean its actually healthy food, just the healthiest example of that type of food...

This means that even something that is deep fried can get the tick, if, for example it has the lowest amount of fat & salt for that type of food.

Hey, Holycow.  Nothing wrong with a little protein with yr starch.
I know of a lovely little place in Los Angeles that includes cock roaches with their cheese enchaladas. And they don't even charge extra!

Eddie,  lol   There was a show just a few weeks ago (60 minutes, I think) that showed roaches running all over the restaurants at night.   They just went up to the windows and filmed inside the closed restaurants.  puke
