The Belgians called the crime against the people that the EC experts want to blanch the tubers before cooking.
Belgian politicians are sure that representatives of the European Commission want by their restrictions to deprive the country of a national dish - double fried potatoes. The fact is that experts are sure: when roasted according to a national recipe, carcinogens are formed. According to The Guardian, then they offered to blanch potatoes.
In response, the Belgians said that this was a crime against the people. In their opinion, in this case, the taste of potatoes will change dramatically. Tourism Minister Ben Waits has linked such a ban to the cultural integrity of Belgium.
