Pub. Date:
Growing up in the 1830s in Saratoga Springs, New York, isn't easy for George Crum. Picked on at school because of the colour of his skin, George escapes into his favourite pastimes - hunting and fishing. Soon George learns to cook too and as a young man he lands a job as chef at the fancy Moon's Lake House. George loves his work, except for the fussy customers! One day his patience boils over and he cooks up a potato dish so unique it changes his life forever... He invented the potato chip!
