There are not many dishes in the world that have risen to the popularity of pommes frites. Originally invented in Belgium, this simple dish is made out of potatoes that are cut into lengthwise strips and deep-fried in hot oil. Although there is some rivalry between France and Belgium concerning the exact origin of pommes frites, the fact is that there is no nation in the world which celebrates and enjoys this dish more than the Belgians.
They eat it on a daily basis, as a side dish or as a snack, while pommes frites shops, called frietkots or fritures, can be found throughout the country. Belgian-style pommes frites are freshly prepared, cut into thicker strips and fried on the spot.
They are traditionally served in paper cones and accompanied by a generous portion of mayonnaise. Today, a slightly different and more common version of pommes frites is served in fast-food restaurants around the world: the strips are thinner than the traditional kind, and the typical choice for an accompanying condiment is ketchup.
Regardless of the variety of condiments, and the way it is served, these tasty fries have long ago established their position as a favorite snack around the globe.

The sandwich was popularized in England in 1762 by John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Legend has it, and most food historians agree, that Montagu had a substantial gambling problem that led him to spend hours on end at the card table. During a particularly long binge, he asked the house cook to bring him something he could eat without getting up from his seat, and the sandwich was born. Montagu enjoyed his meat and bread so much that he ate it constantly, and as the concoction grew popular in London society circles it also took on the Earl’s name.

The pizza we all know today, made with tomato sauce, cheese, and numerous toppings, originated in Italy. It became popular in Naples in the 18th century as a nourishing food that was consumed mainly by peasants. The modern pizza as we know it today evolved from early Neapolitan flatbreads topped with lard, salt, and garlic.The Italians credit Raffaele Esposito of Pizzeria Brandi as having invented the first modern pizza in 1889.He was supposed to make a variety of pizzas for the queen, so he made one with lard, cheese, and basil, one with fish, and one with mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes. Known as pizza alla mozzarella at the time, this last pizza later became known as pizza margherita, once the queen declared it as her favorite.Interestingly enough, the colors of the margherita are the same as those found on the Italian flag. Pizza crossed over the Italian border shortly thereafter, to Spain, France, England, and the United States, where it was introduced by Italian immigrants.In an ironic twist of fate, American-style pizza has been re-exported back to Italy, where it is has also gained in popularity today. In 2008, two Italian associations called Real Pizza and the Association of Neapolitan Pizza-makers introduced new regulations on what constitutes a true Neapolitan pizza.According to them, the real, legally-protected Neapolitan margherita should be made with exact amounts of mozzarella, salt, and tomatoes, and it should be baked in a wood-fired oven at 485°C
