Also before the main show begins, there's plenty of interesting information about growing potatoes and potato types. The International Potato Center in Peru has a collection of over 4,000 potato varieties. Four to Five hundred varieties are actually produced around the world with China being the number one producer.
There are so many potato types, most of which are unfamiliar to me like: Ambo, Anna, Chieftain, Granola, Epicure, Shannon, Red Rooste, Smile, Ajax, and Cupids.
The recipes include classics, soups, salads, appetizers, side dishes, main courses, breads, biscuits, and desserts. The recipes are easy to follow; with many are included tips and optional variations. Note that the recipes do not include suggested times or calorie counts. There are only a couple sections of colored photographs, but they look real enough to make a potatophile drool.
Looking for a good recipe book for this universally popular and versatile vegetable? This one won't disappoint many.
So how could I resist a cookbook of recipes of potatoes??!!
The book begins with an introduction of the author and her family's love of potatoes. Then comes the history of potatoes ... did you know that as early as 750BC, the Incas were cultivating this new food source? There is also a lesson about buying and cooking potatoes and growing your own. There are 400 to 500 varieties of potatoes in active production around the world and there are 20 pages describing them (what kind, where available, uses, etc.)!
And then comes the best part ... the recipes!
* Top twenty classics
* A bowl of soup
* Snacks, small plates & light meals
* Sensational spuds on the side
* Main courses with meat, poultry, fish & seafood
* Vegetarian mains to satisfy
* Breads, biscuits, scones, griddle cakes & more
* Desserts & confections
With each recipe (which look easy to follow), there is a description, the amount of servings and tips. What's missing, though, is the nutritional content ... it would be nice to know the calories, fibre, etc.
