The appearance of potato chips
In the spring of 1853, Captain Vanderbilt went on vacation to a tourist resort in New York. One day, he complained to the chef at dinner that the potato chips were too thick. The chef decided to make a joke with Vanderbilt, who cut the potato into paper-like slices, fried in hot oil, and sprinkled with spices. I wanted to make a joke. I didn't expect the captain to praise it. This became the potato chip today.
At Moon Lake Hotel, a customer (some documents say millionaire Vanderbilt) thinks that Chef George's potato chips are too thick and he doesn't like it, so he refuses to pay. So George made a little thinner, but he could not satisfy him. The irritated George decided to teach the guest that he made the chips so thin and so fragile that the forks could not be inserted. However, this did not achieve his intended purpose, and the guest liked the light yellow, paper-thin potato chips. Other guests also asked George to make this potato chip for them. Since then, Saratoga potato chips have appeared on the menu and become a specialty food.
Soon, the potato chips were packaged and sold, and they were only sold locally at the beginning, and they immediately swept the entire New England area. Finally George opened his own restaurant, the biggest feature of the restaurant is the potato chips. At that time, the potato was peeled and sliced by hand. In the 1920s, the invention of the potato peeler made the potato chips from small-scale production to the most sold snacks.
