You say potato, and I say cooking

Did you think that I was never going to move beyond Apples for Jam? Yes that was far more than 10 recipes as I cooked my way through all the colors and patterns. But now I am ready to move on to Potato: The definitive guide to potatoes and potato cooking. I bought this book years ago as part of a two-book set - the other book features rice.

This recipe book specifies which type of potato to use in each recipe. However, as many are varieties that I have never seen, I'll just have to pick a reasonable alternative.

The first five recipes I'll cook are:

  • Leek and potato soup
  • Kale, chorizo and potato soup - This recipe seems inspired by caldo verde, my favorite Portuguese soup.
  • Pink fir apple potato salad - Calls for "pink fir apple" potatoes. I would buy those potatoes just for the name if I ever saw them. But I never heard of them. According to the encyclopedic listing of potato varieties, this type is available in France, Australia, and the U.K.
  • Biarritz potatoes
  • Oven chip roasties - I love the cook's tip: "Oven chip roasties make great mid-week suppers served with fried eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes."
