We’ve all heard about some pretty odd jobs out there. None may quite compare, however, to being a “sensory panelist” for a frozen foods company. A look at the job that results in mouth blisters, after the jump.

Have all the ballpark dogs you want at the game, but get a big serving of garlic fries to go with them. These stadium staples have been ruining marriage proposals at ballparks for decades, and you can easily make them with the help of a small deep-fryer — a worthy investment for any home cook. 

Oh Mon Dieu! It's A Brisket Poutine Recipe

Fries meet tender brisket and hot cheese sauce
Mar 27, 2014 2:00 pm

There's no shortage of great bar snacks during Craft Beer & Spirits Week, or we'd never make it through. We borrowed a brisket poutine recipe from Miami Beach gastropub Tongue & Cheek (home of the $2 happy hour beef cheek slider) that pairs just as perfectly with an expertly crafted whiskey cocktail as it does with a huge hoppy beer. Supreme satisfaction, right this way. 

Lobster Roll Side Dish Battle: Potato Chips Vs. French Fries

FR's Assistant Editors argue loudly for an hour
Jul 25, 2013 1:01 pm

I picked up on this little spat between Assistant Contributing Editors Laila and George, shortly after George hoovered a lobster roll for lunch, having eaten the accompanying waffle chips on the way back to the office. You see, he prefers fries with his, and Laila likes chips with hers. Both made very strong arguments. Observe young food writers in their native habitat after the jump.

Boy, I hope you like inane stories! I came home a very special kind of drunk last Saturday night/Sunday morning, too drunk to obtain fries, apparently. Ready for a half-decent story?

Let's hear it for the side we all know and love: potatoes! There are at least a million ways to spin 'em, so believe it when we say narrowing all of our beloved potato recipes down to 25 was a challenge. But that's how much we care about our readers' side dishes.

Legendary Sandwich: The Mitraillette

Or call it by its formal name: The Submachine Gun
Oct 25, 2012 11:31 am

I read myself to sleep last night with one of my favorite bedtime stories: Jon Chonko's Scanwiches book. It's a real thriller — intimidating Italian characters who may or may not be associated with the mob, a classic meat-meets-bread story, a little fluff, a sexy Cuban and a war (but I won't give away the twist). A war? Yes, Belgium wins. Awh, I gave away the twist. It's all because of the Mitraillette.

It's French Fry Day and Bastille Day Eve (is that a thing?). Which means it's time for steak-frites and red wine!
