Many of you know that my favorite flavor is… FRIED!
Here’s a fact for you… French Fries were actually invented in Belgium, not France. They’re called Pommes frites, or fried potatoes, in both conutries, since they speak the same language. We can probably blame Thomas Jefferson for the mix-up here in America, since he called them ”potatoes in the French way” when he brought the recipe home with him after a trip to Paris. We also have him to thank for waffles, the yummy stuff we at Blue Bamboo serve with fried chicken, but that is another holiday we will have to talk about later.
I can’t imagine a single American sandwich that would not taste better with fries. Chefs all over the country serve up recipes with all kinds of French fry creations. Here at Blue Bambo, we simply serve our fries with salt, cracked black pepper, and some rosemary fresh out of our garden upon request. We serve them alongside our Chinese BBQ Spareribs, Peppercorn Crusted Beef Filets, Chicken Sandwiches, and Vietnamese Bahn Mi Sandwiches.
So come on in and celebrate National French Fry Day with us!
