Today, on National French Fry Day (or any day, really), we present taste-tested, Heather Irwin-approved fries for any walk of life.
Dig in, Sonoma County. And click through the above gallery for details.
Farmer's Wife, Sebastopol: If French fries died and went to heaven, they'd land here. Fries are simply the base for toppings that range from simple truffle and lemon herb aioli to BLT (bacon, heirloom tomatoes, avocado, mayo ketchup), patty melt (grass fed beef with aged cheddar, avocado, tomato, pickles, secret sauce) or grass-fed beef filet with egg, avocado, chimichurri, jalapeño verde and aged cheddar.
