The potato has become so familiar to everyone today – it is the uncontested star on the menu of chefs both great and small – that we tend to forget its history. The potato has survived wars, famines, political intrigue and is certainly the modern-day success story of the food industry. With its origins in the Andes, the potato was introduced to 16th century Europe by the Spanish and this beautifully illustrated book tell the fascinating story of this nutritious and delicious vegetable before presenting a portrait of 180 different types; from British Queen, first grown in Scotland, to la Ratte, made famous by Joel Robuchon. Then fifty-three potato-loving chefs enable the reader to discover or rediscover the variety of ways the world’s most popular tuber can be enjoyed.
