Belgium: Pomme Frites (French Fries)

Posted on

Think you know about french fries? Maybe you do, but then maybe you don’t. Yes, it’s called french fries, but that only refers to the julienne cut, not the origin of the fast food. Believe it or not, the french fry or more appropriately named the “pomme frite” has its origins in Belgium where it’s twice-fried  and served  in a paper cone with a variety of toppings including mayo. Watch this clip from the Food Network about a little place in New York City that is home to this well-beloved Belgian snack.
