I just read an article about how a Delaware man and his family have opened a restaurant to sell “Tornado Fries” in their resort community.
I’ve never heard of the food, so I did some research. According the article, tornado fries are deep-fried potatoes-on-a-stick that were featured on the Food Network series “Unwrapped.”
I found a couple videos, including the episode of Unwrapped that featured the fries.
This video, in English, from Japan highlights a number of machines that can create the tornado fries.
Finally, I found TornadoFries.com, who explains the food thusly:
A Tornado Fry is our own creation made by hand selecting the freshest Idaho russet potatoes, cutting them in to a one-piece thin spiral on an 18 or 26 inch skewer, cooking them in 100% canola oil until they are crispy outside and tender inside and seasoning them to perfection.
