The Hamburger's Side-Kick

It’s Burger Week at the River House Café! Although there continues to be discussions as to the origins of the hamburger, there are even bigger disputes on the origins of the hamburger’s side-kick…. French Fries. One may immediately assume that the “French Fry” was invented in France. And French citizens would agree. But there is an on-going dispute that these delicately fried potatoes originated in Belgium. This on-going dispute between the French and Belgians about where French Fries were invented is highly contentious, with both countries claiming ownership.  Americans came to know French Fries through Thomas Jefferson, who referred to them as “frying potatoes in the French manner.” Between the 1850s and 1930s, many referred to French fries as “French fried potatoes.” Around 1930, everyone dropped the “potatoes” and started calling them French Fries. Are they calling out to you yet? Stop on by the River House Café for Hamburger Week and tell us who's side you are on! Written by Kim Naude
