Help me “Reinvent a Classic” with Alexia Fries
I’m on a mission………and I need your help! I am one of 25 food bloggers (so honored!) who have been invited by Alexia foods to join their challenge to reinvent a classic and create a new French fry variety.
During the next month I’ll be experimenting, cooking, and eating different french fry creations but I need your help. I need to come up with a flavored French fry that you would want to buy. Can you help me?
Let’s start with the potatoes:
What type of potatoes do you like best? Sweet potato or Russet potato?
Next is Fry Cut:
What type of fry cut do you like? Waffle, Crinkle, Wedge or Julienne
It’s all about the flavor, baby! Do you like sweet or salty? Do you have to have cheese with your fries? What about herbs and other flavorings. Do you have a crazy concoction you like on your fries ? spill it!
Me, I LOOOVE Parmesan on my fries, so that was my first thought, but after 20,000 votes were cast, last years winning flavor was Alexia’s NEW Parmesan Lemon Waffle Fries, which will be available this fall……. so I may need to go another direction.
Right now I have a freezer full of Alexia fries in many flavors we plan to sample to get our flavor ideas spinning. If my idea sounds good enough to the “judges”, it will be one of 4 at this year’s Foodbuzz Festival in San Fransico and put to a nationwide consumer vote! YIKES!! How exciting is THAT?!
So let’s get this party started……… leave a comment below and tell me what you like in a french fry.
I’ll keep you posted over the next few weeks and let you know how it’s going!
