Does anybody else like me dislike this description, with the chips either in a little bucket or piled in a little heap next to the meat. I am afraid I can't see the point in this ,just so pretentious.

It's chip in a bucket that I can't stand - just pointless. And the only time I had thrice fried chips I would more accurately have described them as burnt.

I like crispy chips that are fluffy on the inside. Cooking them three times achieves this, how is that pretentious?
prententious or not they are soooo nice
Probably not pretentious if you do them yourself....but highly pretentious if paying a tenner for a little heap of them?
For those of us that can remember what real chips taste like I find we do not need a description as such. My Grandma made the best chips ever which she cooked in dripping. I still try to copy every so often. I think foodies make us feel that we have not achieved perfection in creating a meal unless it looks like a picture on a plate.
My meals always look like a picture 'The Wreck of the Hesperus'
All my life I have made chips using the 'twice cooked' method, rarely make from scratch now but do sometimes do them 'Thrice' - Pretentious Moi??

I rarely cook chips at home .I get a bag of chips fried in beef dripping on the local market now and again .I very much doubt if they are fried thrice and care even less .All I know is they taste delicious !
a chips a chip!!
I don't mind skinny chips in a little bucket but I do loathe jenga chips!
If you don't like chips in a bucket, just tip them on to the plate. A lot of restaurants use a tin/pot to keep the chips crisp as often a plate is wet from sauce/dressing resulting in soggy chips. Putting them in a container avoids this.
the thrice fried things sound absolutely vile. Our local chippy though does chips that taste just like roast potatoes. Nom Nom nom...
I love them. They are steamed/boiled first, cooked in oil at a med temp...then the temp gets turned up to high to really crisp them.

Not burnt at all.
