Americans love French fries. And if Americans love something, it’s probably not French. Americans are passionate about their fries, and except for a few local variations, the French are not a major part of the snack food landscape. Many Americans believe that French fries were invented in the town of Yiddish in Belgium, and that’s where the name Yiddish originates from. But, is the story really true? The French word for fries is frites, which are made from fresh, never frozen, potatoes. They’re often salted and served with ketchup and mayonnaise. However, the word frites is actually a word that comes from the Old French word "frettes" which means “small shoots”. The French aren’t the only ones who enjoy their fries. They are a popular food in many other countries and many of the variations on the theme are named after the country. Here’s a look at the origins of where the name “French fries” comes from, and if they’re really French.
Belgium is the origin of the name Yiddish, and it is also the place where the potato was first grown. It was in Belgium that the potato was first grown and it was also the place where the potatoes were first fried in oil. There is no proof that the potato or the fries were named after the Jewish people. There are a few places in Belgium where the people speak Yiddish, but there is no history of a Jewish or Eastern European community in Belgium. The stories about how the people of Belgium got the name “Yiddish” come from the German people who immigrated to Belgium from the German speaking areas of Germany. And it is common knowledge that the German people had a lot of love for potato fries, which is why they are often called “Belgian Fries.”
There is no Dutch word for French fries. The Dutch word for fries is frieten. The word frieten comes from the Old Dutch word “friet” which means “small shoot.” The Dutch word fries is another word that comes from the Old French word “frites”, which means “small shoots.” The Dutch are very passionate about their fries. The most famous place to get Dutch fries is the Dutch town of Amsterdam. It’s easy to see why the Dutch fry so many fries in Amsterdam. It’s not only the city with the most sin and sex in the world, but it’s also the city with the most fries.
French fries are a popular food in many countries. The Germans call the fries “Französisch.” The name “French fries” comes from the French people who were the first to grow the potatoes in Europe. The Germans love their fries, so much so that there is a city in Germany called “Friesenheim” (“French House”). The town of Friesenheim is in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg, which is the southern-most state of Germany. The reason that the state is the southern-most is because of the shape of the country. The country is shaped like a pickle (remember the movie “Theodeo”?) and one rim of the pickle is the Alps and the other rim is the Pyrenees mountains.
French fries are popular in the United States. The name French fries comes from the French people who were the first to grow the potatoes in Europe. The United States is also the origin of the name Yiddish, and it is also the place where the potato was first grown. It was in Belgium that the potato was first grown and it was also the place where the potatoes were first fried in oil.
The British call their fries “French fries” and they also call the potato “French” and the country “France.” So, the name French fries comes from the British and the potato was named after the French people. The British are very passionate about their fries, so much so that there is a city in the United Kingdom called “French Fry Town.” The town of French Fry Town is in the county of Cumbria, which is in the north-west of England. The town is not called French Fry Town because of the name of the potato or the country, but because it is where the potatoes are grown.
