March 14th National Potato Chip Day

George Crum was the chef at a Saratoga Springs, NY restaurant. In 1853, he sent out a plate of food to a customer that sent it back complaining the potatoes were too thick. Crum sliced the potatoes thinner and sent the plate back out. The customer again returned the plate with the same concern. This time Crum got mad and sliced the potatoes as thin as he could and fried them and sent it back out with revenge in mind. The customer, whose name remains unknown, loved the potatoes and the Potato Chip was born.
