Truffled French Fries

White Truffle Fries


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled
  • Oil for frying
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon truffle oil

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into thin strips, about 1/3-inch in width. Soak the potatoes in ice-cold water for 1 hour, drain, and pat completely dry. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep skillet to 325F and fry the potatoes, in batches, for 2 minutes. Drain the fries on fresh kitchen towels and heat the oil to 180.56 C.

Fry the potatoes for a second time, in batches, for 1 and a 1/2 minutes. Drain the fries on baking sheets lined with fresh kitchen towels and divide them between servings plates. Sprinkle the salt them and then drizzle truffle oil over them.

Finish the dish with Parmesan and coarse pepper. 

This truffled fries recipe makes 4 large or 6 small servings.

Tip: Serve them with a bit of aioli on the side, for dipping
