TIP: Temperature of cooking oil needs to be at 120°C otherwise fries tend to stick to the pan and become soggy.


The Dutch love their fries. An average person consumes up to 18kg of fried potatoes or frites every year#. Martin Zwerts’ speciality fries use Holland-imported potatoes which have a higher starch content and low moisture – hence, these spuds are more dense in texture. They need to be aged for a few months before cooking. The older the spud, the better fries it makes. This is because it takes time for sufficient starch to develop in order to achieve sturdy fries with a crisp coating. Zwerts’ first Asian flagship store opened in Singapore recently.


*Brown sauce is available at selected supermarkets in Singapore.
