The history of French fries spans countries and gives us tater tots. And which is the superior fried potato, anyway?

Let's start at the beginning. French fries came from ... France, right? Oh boy, we've got a lot of history to get through. Join host Justin Dodd in a journey through the history of fried potatoes.

Food History is a series from Mental Floss where we dive deep into the culinary stories that lead to the food on our plates. If you have an idea for a dish, cooking technique, or cuisine that you’d like us to explore in a future episode, tell us in the comments.
