1. Preheat the oven to 425.
2. Peel the potatoes. Cut them in half horizontally. Cut each half into long, 1/3" thick sticks.
3. Toss the potato sticks in a bowl with the olive oil until evenly coated. Spread them on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and bake in the upper third of the oven, turning once or twice with a spatula, until they are golden and crispy, about 30 minutes.
4. Sprinkle the garlic and herbs over the fries and toss well. Roast for about 5 minutes longer, until the garlic is lightly browned.
5. Transfer the fries to a bowl and toss with the cheese. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
