About 300 Best Potato Recipes

The humble potato is a culinary powerhouse — it inspires adventurous and tantalizing fare.

A desert island vegetable if ever there was one, the potato appeals to all of us, whether it’s served as a traditional comfort dish or used to create something new and exotic.  It’s versatile, nutritious, inexpensive and unfailingly delicious — and what other food can make all those claims?

Tempting possibilities are offered up in this widely varied assortment of recipes, a collection that runs the gamut from instructing on the classics — the perfect mashed, baked, roasted and fried potatoes — to introducing innovative, colorful and creative modern dishes.

Appetizers and snacks, soups and salads, side dishes, main courses, hearty vegetarian main dishes, baked goods and desserts are all represented here.  Also included is a complete history of the potato, as well as a comprehensive chapter that tells you everything you need to know about hundreds of potato varieties.

And for the growing number of home vegetable gardeners, there’s even a chapter devoted to cultivating and growing your own potatoes, as well as fundamental information on storing potatoes.
