Did you know: Potatoes were first cultivated around 8,00 B.C. to 5,000 B.C.
And another thing?
French Fries were introduced to the U.S. when Thomas Jefferson served them in the White House during his Presidency of 1801-1809. Collinet, chef for French King Louis Phillipe (reign 1830-1848) unintentionally created soufflés (or puffed) potatoes by plunging already fried potatoes into extremely hot oil(Fact from potatosusa.com) Honestly I wonder how long it'd take for someone to make french fries if someone didn't accidently fuck it up. Something to think about I'd assume.
