Instructions

Step 1: French Fries

Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut them into even, 1 x 6 cm (0.4 x 2.4 in) strips. Place them in a pot of cold, salted water. Bring to a boil, and cook until they begin to burst. Gently remove them from the water and let them dry overnight on a dry cloth.

Step 2: Thai sauce

Chop the ginger, lemongrass, and pepper, then put them in a skillet. Add the mirin and white vinegar, reduce by three quarters, and let cool. Combine the reduction, egg yolk, and mustard in a bowl, gently pour in the oil, and whisk until a mayonnaise forms. Finely slice the basil and add it to the bowl. Grate the lime zest over the top.
