The guy who invented them was from belguim, yes, but his last name was FRENCH.

Im full of useless facts like that XD

Actually it's because for french fries potatoes are french cut which of course is a style of sliceing o3o
Also it may be a try too make it sound fancy because when fast food was first made it was highly unpopular o3o

Actually, it was made in Belgium, where one of the national language is French. They showed it to the Americans and because they spoke French, they assumed that it was from France, lo French Fries were born.

To question duck: Because humans are utter morons.

Because the method of slicing them is called "frenching".

Why? I don't know, ask the guy who created the technique.

Because there were so many varied answers, I decided to look up "French fries" on Wikipedia. It looks like everyone is wrong except NeoKitai.


Read "Etymology" and "Culinary Origin: Belgium".
