During World War 1 the American soldiers were stationed in Belgium and were introduced to the delicious French Fries for the first time ever. Fast forward to this year French Fries are eaten and enjoyed everywhere all over the world. In America, French fries are most of the time served with a tasty cheeseburger or a hot dog. In the United Kingdom French Fries are eaten with fish which is a very well known dish around the world called Fish and Chips. Canada also has its special dish called Poutines. Poutines are French fries that are covered with cheese curds and brown gravy. Basically French fries can be eaten with anything and is a very versatile food around the world.
