Going behind the scenes, Reading Magazine food fanatic Justin Choate found several chefs eager to talk about their unique creations.

Walking through French Fry Fest, Choate found several french fry fans trying new flavors, including Kevin Gorski who shared his take on the Say Cheese Spicy BBQ Fries.

“One of my favorite things is the Coleslaw with the ghost pepper mixed in, so it does have a good kick to it, but its not too much of a kick, its got a good flavor mixed around it, their masters at cheeses” said Choate.

French Fries weren’t the only thing on the menu on Saturday. In conjunction with the French Fry Festival, Beer Fest was also held across the street in the Olympia Ball Room featuring beer tasting from several local breweries and pubs.
