Yes, those delicious golden fries are really Belgian. Dating back as far as 1680 Belgians have been enjoying fries which are deep-fried twice to give them a soft core and golden-crisp outside. In Belgium, fries can be bought at fry-stands and are eaten out of a conical paper-bag – often accompanied by a variety of sauces. Alternatively, fries are eaten as a side with steak, stews, and mussels. Remember, you can’t make a good fry out of just any potato, the best potatoes to make Belgian fries are Bintjes but Russet potatoes and Yukon Gold potatoes make a fine alternative. Follow the simple steps below to make those perfect, delicious fries every time!
