Potato chip William Lawrence Sr 6-15-19

Catherine Wicks circa 1850 accidentally sliced a potato too thin which by accident fell into a pan fat in the kitchen of Cary Moon’s Lake House in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. She placed it on a plate and her brother George Crum, who was the chef, tasted it. He said something akin to “yum, we will make a lot of these” and they did. Hence, was born the potato chip. At least according to one version.
