Format: Paperback
I think the previous reviewer is very harsh and can't really back up his reasoning for disliking the book. I have spent a lot of time flipping through it and planning which recipes to try, and have already tried a couple... I think there are some really great ideas in here for a potato-lover who wants to try something newer than the plain old recipes they might be used to. There are great ethnic potato recipes as well as classics with new and interesting twists. I have A LOT of cookbooks, about 80 or so, and I can honestly say that there are several recipes in this book that I am very anxious to try, so don't breeze past this one just because someone else gave it an unfair review. If you love potatoes, this is a great book you should look into.

I read and review tons of books and this one is a winner. If you love potatoes you will find many new and different ways of serving them from decadent dishes dripping with cheese to healthy ones with nothing but fresh herbs and citrus.

Marlena Speiler is great, and this cookbook has so many great recipes! I've made about 10-12 of them and will continue. Also gave a copy to my daughter for Xmas, with my notes on recipes I've tried and loved. YUMMY is the right title!

I love this little paperback, with its tasty recipes, suggested variations and accompanying photos. We have enjoyed half a dozen recipes so far and added a few to the regular cooking rotation. This single topic cookbook ranges the world of taste with its tempting recipes. (No failures or rejected recipes yet.)

Love the recipes. Hate formatting. One of my pet peeves is recipes that go over pages. This one does. Take for example the latke recipe. In portrait view, the ingredient list goes over the page making it very difficult to cook from (surely the main purpose of a cookbook?). Landscape view is OK. That aside, an interesting book with lots of reliable recipes. The formatting is the only reason I've been mean with the stars.

Have so enjoyed reading this book by Ms. Spieler who could turn to novel writing with her humorous insights on human behavior and eating habits. Choke full of potato history, lore and passion for the spud we have all grown up loving on our plates. Gives one new insights into the lowly potato and causes a person to reconsider different ways to brighten up this hard working tuber. Delightful dialogue, great recipes I look forward to trying one at a time and above all else a new appreciation for the POTATOES in my life!

I love potatoes and am always looking for a new recipe. This book was an obvious choice for me and did not disappoint. My only concern was that some of the measurements were a tad off, though not enough to spoil the recipe.
