The French, of course, love their fries, garlic, and San Francisco, too. The City by the Bay is the sister city of Paris, France, where transplanted San Francisco Food Trucks are popular: (here).
The recipe from Epicurious is a snap to make--with less hands-on time as the 'fries' are actually baked. They'll still deliver the nice crunch of signature Gilroy Garlic Fries served at the San Francisco Giants' home venue. Use organic potatoes for health and to optimize flavor.

San Francisco Garlic Fries~
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
2 1/4 pounds russet potatoes, cut lengthwise into 3 x 1/3 x 1/3-inch batons
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Toss potatoes with 2 1/2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheet.
Roast the potatoes, turning occasionally, until browned and tender, about 30 minutes. Increase heat to 500°F. Continue roasting until fries are deep brown in spots, about 5 more minutes.
Whisk remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil, garlic, and parsley in a large bowl. Add hot fries, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.
While they bake, sip a glass of wine and dance around the kitchen to Charles Aznavour and Frank Sinatra's "You Make Me Feel So Young" (here). And Julio Iglesias and Sinatra's "Summer Wind" (here). Enjoy!
