All week long Jody Williams, the chef at New York's beloved Buvette restaurant, will be sharing recipes from her new book, Buvette: The Pleasure of Good Food. Follow along to win one of five copies we're giving away -- and to add a little more Paris into your life.

Today: The humble potato chip gets all dressed up with rosemary and flaky salt.

Buvette's Uova Sode with Seasoned Salt

I can’t imagine a more desired food than a potato chip. As the saying goes, “you can’t have just one.” I like to serve potato chips in silver bowls, or even on silver pedestals, noting the extraordinary potential of one of the most ordinary of foods.

Keep in mind that the potatoes in this recipe must soak for at least 20 minutes before frying, but they can sit that way for up to a day, so do slice them ahead of time and plan ahead. 

Rosemary Potato Chips

Serves 4

1 teaspoon very finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 russet potatoes, peeled
Oil, for frying (corn, peanut, vegetable, canola, or grapeseed oil all work well)

See the full recipe (and save and print it) here.

We're giving away a copy of Buvette a day! To enter to win today's copy, tell us in the comments: How do you dress up your chips? We'll pick five winners at random this Friday, April 25th!

Salt and paprika. Sometimes hot, sometimes sweet. Depends on the mood.

a little truffle oil, herb de Provence, sea salt and cracked pepper! I make these at least twice a week with every potato (and occasional carrot) I can get my hands on!

Taking a tip from Melissa Clark, I like to serve potato chips with American Hackleback Caviar and Crème Fraîche. That's not just dressed up; it's black tie.

Sweet potato fries LOVE rosemary and a pinch of sugar and cayenne.

Vinegar, coarse sea salt, and black pepper! Sweet and tangy all at once.

Drizzle chips with balsamic glaze and throw on some goat or blue cheese.

I never thought to dress up chips. I keep chips out of the house. But making them really appeals to me. I will use rosemary. or how about homemade lemon salt?

salt, but the rosemary sounds fantastic!

I've never made my own chips, but this recipe inspires me to do so. I think I would serve them in newspaper cups and celebrate their down to earth awesomeness. Rosemary, salt, potato. YUM.
