It starts with a Dutch farmer who grows potatoes from generation to generation. Every day, the potatoes are transported directly from the farmer in large bags to our shop to be cut on site into fresh fries!

Our fries potatoes are large potatoes of the best quality from the Agria variety. The Agria variety has been specially developed for making fresh fries. The Agria variety produces beautiful golden-yellow fries, crispy on the outside and with a nice soft potato taste on the inside. In consultation with our farmer, we choose the right cultivation measures, which results in a fantastic product.



In everything we do at Ter Marsch & Co the quality comes first. This also applies to our fresh fries, which does not end with the harvest of our potatoes. We also check the temperature and measure the starch content when storing the potatoes. Accordingly we store the potatoes in crates, which prevents them from damages so that we can make the tastiest fries of the Netherlands!



In our shops and restaurants, the potatoes are cut by hand on a daily basis into fresh fries. Then the potatoes are pre-fried so that the potato is pre-cooked and accordingly we allow them to cool down. When serving, our final step is to bake them to perfection! We do this in 100% vegetable oil, which produces beautiful golden-yellow fries with a thin skin, crispy on the outside and with a nice soft potato taste on the inside. We salt the fries with Celtic sea salt, which is a mineral-rich sea salt that has been extracted in a traditional way with love and respect for nature. After baking, the fries are served with our homemade sauce to your choice in a cone (puntzak) or a luxurious packing for the signatures fries. Definitely you need to try them all.

History Hamburger

Surprisingly, the burger originated from the Mongols back in the 13th century. The Mongols were used to eat their beef raw. They stuck pieces of beef between their horse and the saddle, due to the friction the meat became really tender and soft. It got minced in a way. The Mongols brought their meat to their neighbors, the Russians. In Russia, they call the Mongols ‘Tartars’. Do you now understand where the name ‘Steak Tartar’ originates from? 
This way of consuming meat became popular in the 17th century in the European city of commerce, Hamburg. And where there is commerce, there are the Russians. And what did the Russians bring around? That’s right! The minced beef! Although, in Germany they had less appreciation for the raw version, they decided to mix the meat with some herbs and spices and lightly grill the beef. This way of preparing beef was known as ‘Hamburger Style’. This popularly became ‘Hamburger’. 

In the 19th century the German fortune seekers and adventurers brought along the recipe to the United States of America. The Hamburger Style wasn’t easily adapted by the American culture. Only a few were brave enough to put the lightly grilled beef on their menus. It wasn’t up until 1900 when the beef met his beloved companion; the bun. But back then, the friendship was of a purely practical nature. The Hamburger was nothing but a labor workers meal. The bread was used as a utility to grab the meat, without getting messy. This was a great resource for the workers; this way they could eat standing or walking. Nothing but a practical matter.
The Netherlands were quite late-adaptors in the world of Hamburgers. Up until the 80’s of the 21st century we served the burger skinny. Luckily he found his friend le bun and is complete in the modern way, which we are familiar to now. 
So, for the next Christmas or any family occasion, you are now loaded with this amazing story about how the Hamburger found its way to your hands; (hands, you eat your burger with. Always use both hands!). Anyway, you’re welcome. 

Check out this jolly video of New York Magazine where they visually explain the History of the Burger once again, but then really awesome.
