Yummy Potatoes
65 Downright Delicious Recipes

by Betty Marlena Spieler


In this delectable book, author Marlena Spieler offers 65 mouthwatering recipes for cooking potatoes in almost every way imaginable-baked, mashed, boiled, stewed, or fried. The potato, a staple food of cultures around the world, appears in such diverse dishes as Aloo Tamatar Bhaji, an Indian dish of potatoes cooked in a ginger tomato-curry sauce, and Chermoula, a Moroccan dish of potatoes tossed with chilies and lemon. Indeed, breakfast options like the Huevos Estilo Andalucia, a Spanish morning dish of eggs poached in peppery tomato sauce, will make anyone wonder how the potato ever came to be considered bland.

Still, Spieler does not leave the less adventurous potato palette unsatisfied. Recipes for Bruce's Deli Potato Salad and Crazy Rich, Cream, Double-Garlic Mashed Potatoes are just right for anyone seeking classic comfort food. In addition, a thorough introduction following the table of contents provides delightful anecdotes, useful information, and a brief history of this celebrated starch.
