The OG Crum

Posted at 8:00 AM - February 10th, 2020 - Mint2Grow

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes. If you don't love potatoes, well, just know I'm judging you. Everything great in this world comes from this humble root vegetable. Potato bread, potato skins, mashed potatoes, potato pancakes, potato salad, au gratin, gnocchi, french fries, and one of the most consumed snacks in the US, potato chips. Potato chips come in all shapes, sizes, thicknesses, textures, and flavors, but where do they come from? Well, William Kitchiner, is known for the earliest recipe for crisps, in his cookbook that came out in 1817. However, in honor of black history, I wanted to find someone remarkable to write my very first blog post on. Guess who I happened to stumble upon? Mr. George Crum, who is known as the creator of America's first kettle chip. Wild right? I really enjoyed learning about this person, who I've honestly never heard of before. While I could've chosen anyone, or even someone more well known, to write about, how could I not write about someone responsible for one of my favorite snacks. So let's dive in shall we?

Born as George Speck, in 1824, made a name for himself as an American chef, in a time period where people of color barely had human rights. He originally worked as a hunter, guide, and cook in the Adirondack mountains. His fame came after he was hired as a chef at Moon's Lake House near Saratoga Springs, New York.
