How To Thread A Potato Chip

Chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill at Stone Barns makes a whimsical amuse-bouche by threading a sage leaf through a potato chip. It's easier than it sounds.

After slicing the potatoes, use a paring knife to cut two parallel 3⁄4" slits in the center of a slice, one slit spaced about 1" from the other.

Next, simply pull a sage leaf up through the first slit and then down through the second until it's centered. Repeat with the remaining sage leaves and potato slices. The sage leaves become crisp when fried and lend the chips an herbaceous flavor.
