Dispute between chef and diner
In 1853, George Crum was the chef at Moon’s Lake House in Saratoga Springs, USA. Crum was not known to have good character, and the appearance of Cornelius Vanderbilt in the restaurant sparked one of the inventions most famous in history.
Mr. Vanderbilt ordered a plate of chips, which in English is called french fries. Vanderbilt returned the dish arguing they were too thick and were undercooked. Crum cut the potatoes much thinner and fried longer, but Vanderbilt was his match and back again because they were still too thick. Sick of Vanderbilt, Crum decided to cut so thin and fry it impossible both pierced with a fork without breaking, season them well with salt too.
They are served Vanderbilt expecting rightly not satisfied, but he became crazy Vanderbilt. Crum set up his own restaurant, which served its famous “Saratoga Chips”.
