Foodie Friday – Potatoes

from blogger.com

I’ve been a little obsessed with mashed potatoes of late, sad as it may sound. I’m not sure exactly why I’ve wanted to include them in every meal I’ve cooked this week, but it gives me a neat little excuse to talk about the names of varieties of potatoes. A true potato enthusiastic (too much?) will know that some varieties of potatoes lend themselves well to roasting, some to boiling and others to mashing.

That is, in effect, my strenuous introduction to my post on names of potato varieties. Quite a few of the names on this list will be familiar to you, whilst others are a bit more out there. Either way, it’s a fun little list of names to kick off the weekend.

  1. Gosh you know more about potatoes than I do … what a lot of varieties there are. Quite a few have names of people I know.

    Funnily enough (as you would already know) there is a French dish called Anna Potatoes (Pommes Anna), so my name seems very spuddy indeed.

    We don’t seem to have NEARLY so many varieties as the UK, but we do have the Ruby-Lou, which is a cute name for person or potato.
