George Crum

French fries became a popular dish in American restaurants after Thomas Jefferson ordered that they be served at the White House in 1802. It took another fifty years, however, for a chef in Saratoga Springs to invent the potato chip. Legend has it that George Crumb became frustrated with a customer who complained that his French fries were too thick and soggy. In response Crumb shaved a potato, fried it, and served the crunchy mound loaded with salt. Much to his surprise, the dish was a hit and he served a basked of chips at every table when he opened his own restaurant shortly thereafter. William Vanderbilt was a fan, and although Crumb never patented his invention, he is hailed as the first inventor of the potato chip.
