Belgians are famous for their passion for mussels and chips. Wherever you go in Belgium you will find mussels on the menu. On street stalls in Brussels you can even purchase chips in baguettes. The Belgians eat their chips with mayonnaise or frites sauce which is really just a tartar sauce, you will find this even in Mcdonalds in Belgium. This is one of my favourite accompaniments to chips, my other favourite is Thai sweet chilli sauce. When cooking chips you should always use good floury potatoes such as Maris Piper or King Edward. You need to rinse your potatoes in water to remove the starch before cooking, I like to soak mine for 30 minutes when time allows. To get a crisp chip you should deep fry them twice once in oil at 160°C and then at 190°C, this should give you a nice crispy chip with a tender centre.
