French fries fried right at the “Taste the Difference” Challenge scheduled at the OC Fair:
Beef tallow is a secret ingredient to incredible tasting fried foods, so for old times sake it will be reintroduced at the event. Coast Packing Company, the West’s leading supplier of animal fat beef tallow and lard, and Charles “Chicken Charlie” Boghosian – the deep-fry king of San Diego and points north – will host the Taste the Difference Challenge, a blind taste test.
Fifty fairgoers will have an opportunity to literally taste the difference between Burbank russet potatoes cooked in vegetable oil versus beef tallow, as Chicken Charlie fries up the two varieties for blind taste-testings on-stage. The 50 consumers will then vote for the fries with the best flavor, texture and color, submitting their ballots to determine what really constitutes “French Fries Fried Right.”
