Edouard> You are so right. The Belgians invented "French" fries, and the
way to cook fries is in beef fat! The Belgians--at least in my youth-- had
never heard of cholesterol or maybe they consider it a superstition to this
day. As to BEER, I read someplace once that in Belgium brewmasters take
rigorous exams akin to those given winemakers elsewhere...Ah! Rubens, fries

Didn't want to leave you strap hanging on that one. I had to respond.
I married a Belgian girl. We are stateside now. When I was over there I was
drinking Duvals. They ought to be called devils! Not only 8% alcohol but
used a variety of hops, not typically used in this country that one, well,
bordered on psychoactive!! :-)
The food was great, I was in love, spending money like a drunken sailor and
having 3 square meals a day. Was ready to tattoo B-E-L-G-I-U-M across the
front of my midsection.
Fries cooked in Beef Tallow.
When MacDonalds changed it's oil recipe not to offend non beef eatting
countrys such as India as little as 2-3 years ago, they went all vegetable
oil, for sure. But word leaked out the vegetable oil was favored with beef
derivatives (which turned out to be true), causing a commotion that resulted
in some missing windows at a few downtown New Delhi locations before the
golden arches went again, back to the drawing board.
