20th August, World French Fry Day


A dish so popular around the world that it even has its own day on the calendar: 20th August.

The Spanish imported the tuber into Europe in the 16th century. From the 17th century onwards, Belgians used French fries as a substitute for fried fish when the rivers froze in winter and Belgium is estimated to be the country that consumes the most fries, and in the city of Bruges there is a French Fry Museum, called the Friet Museum.

In addition, Belgium and France claim to have invented the method of cooking French fries, and the former have even applied to Unesco for it to be considered Cultural Heritage, without success to date.

Contrary to popular belief, they can be a healthy food as they are a source of fibre and potassium and also have a high concentration of acrylamides (a chemical compound formed when the starch found in potatoes reaches high temperatures).

For crispy, well-done French fries, it is recommended to cook them in oil at a low temperature and then finish cooking in very hot oil.
