Hello!

Grazing platters have taken over the world. The deconstructed Pavlova board was bigger than tinsel this past Christmas. But now the French Fries board is the trendiest new dish on the table.

The crispy, crunchy platter of potato goodness showcases a variety of different fries (or chips as we Aussies call them). You’ll find crinkled chips, straight-cut, sweet potato fries, wedges and even tater tots, accompanied by different dipping sauces.

The Fry Board is the invention of LA-based ‘Queen of Platters’ food blogger, Sarah Gim, who runs the mouthwateringly, delicious (if-only-we-could-eat-our-screen) Instagram account @thedelicious.

Fries Are Veggies Too!

Gim posted her first Fry board back in July last year saying:
“I had been making cheese boards, charcuterie boards and vegetable crudite boards. And then I just thought, ‘Why not do it with fries?’ French fries are vegetables too!”

Hottest New Food Trend

The post captured the attention of foodies all over the world, with some creating their own versions of the #friesboard.

So Easy To Make At Home

If you’re keen to try this at home (I am), Gim recommends that you use at the minimum two different types of fries and dips. Tomato Sauce is pretty much mandatory as the pick of accompaniments.

No need to peel, chop and fry the potatoes yourself, make your life easier and buy the ready-to-go, oven chips from the freezer section in the supermarket. Cook them and place them on a large platter, with sauces and garnish.

Gim likes partnering her boards with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce too. She suggests a Sriracha aioli, guacamole, hummous or a spicy yoghurt dip.

Decorate your platter with coriander, capsicum, parmesan and wedges of lemon or lime.

“From start to finish, I would say it takes about 25 minutes to cook all of the fries and 15 minutes to pile everything on,” Gim explains.
