Potatoes make up a significant part of the Northern European diet. But until recently, they appeared in America's supermarkets in just a few basic forms: bakers and boilers. Now shoppers have choices among fingerlings, purple-fleshed beauties, and ultra-whites, to name but a few of the spud varieties generally available. The perplexed may turn for guidance to Florence Fabricant's The Great Potato Book . Fabricant provides a photograph of each variety, a description of that potato's salient characteristics, and a recipe or two designed to make best use of that variety's singular advantages. She also assembles lists of substitute potato varieties when the one in the recipe temporarily disappears from the markets. Mark Knoblauch

The vertical format difficult to lay flat on counter if you were following a recipe,
a horizontal format might have been better.
