To quote Mme. Benoit, "Grand-mere was a wizard with pumpkin.
Her mashed potatoes pumpkin french fried chips were super. It's amazing how most of what we enjoyed in our youth remains a pleasure as we grow older.
In the autumn of 1959 I made these on my television show. The amount of mail requesting the recipe was unbelievable!"
