THE NOT SO FRENCH FRIES
The most widely consumed food in the world
Without it, hamburgers wouldn't be as popular, French fries’ shacks wouldn't exist. Crunchy or soft, eaten at the table or in the street, in a cone or as a side dish, the French fry is a star.
This irresistible fried potato stick, which first appeared in the 19th century, requires a bit of know-how. Most of the French fries consumed today are industrial, bought in the frozen section of supermarkets.
The French fry has even become one of the most widely consumed foods in the world, even in China where demand is exploding. So much so that the "Potato King" is now Chinese.
