In what might be the most momentous food news we’ve come across, Chrissy Teigen is producing a documentary investigating the issue of our times: French fries.

The reality star and cookbook author has signed on to make the brilliantly named Fries! The Movie.

The hard-hitting doc will explore the “universal love for French potatoes” and will feature interviews with farmers, chefs, celebrities and food scientists.

The star wrote on Instagram: "Very excited to finally announce the most important documentary of our time!!"

Michael Steed and Gillian Brown, who worked on Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, will co-direct the movie. Teigen’s production company, Suit & Thai Productions, is one of several producers.

Teigen is already signed on to host a food talk show with David Chang next year. And last month she launched a new food website, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, which features recipes, videos and restaurants guides.

  • If it even hints that I shouldn't be eating them, I'm going to turn it off.

  • Cheap as chips ?

    I was thinking of making a documentary about growing peas in the back yard , given the current interest in pea based protein, but I reckon Tony Martin and Mick Molloy might have beaten me to it, with their ground breaking 1998 CD.
