The Belgian Fries Website in the press

I finally had some time to update my Belgian Fries pages!

First of all, I would like to thank the numerous fry-lovers that send me e-mail and apologise to those who haven't received an answer to their questions yet.

What's new?

  • I made a guestbook. I would love you to sign it (guestbook has been moved to the new site).
  • Made some changes to the Recipe-page.

What else is cooking?

  • The recipe-page will be updated very soon with recipes for mayonnaise and mussels.

  • Apart from fries, Belgium is famous for its comic books. I'm preparing a page on 'Belgian Fries in Comics and other Arts'.

  • Another page I'm working on will give you a look inside a typical Belgian frietkot. If you have pictures related to 'frituren' and other fry-related stuff, please contact me.

  • Last plan: the picture gallery, with a lot of pictures of 'frituren'. Below is a preview.

These pages will be updated regularly, so add the URL to your bookmarks and check every now and then or send me an e-mail and I'll keep you posted.
