Smashed, Mashed, Boiled, and Baked--and Fried, Too! A Celebration of Potatoes in 75 Irresistible Recipes by Raghavan Iyer published by Workman Publishing Company last November is a great celebration of the most known tuber of this world: the potato. Loved by everyone I have always loved potatoes so badly as well!
Maybe I don't eat all the rest of veggies, I prefer the first, in general pasta and a good fruit for lunch but during dinner-time potatoes are a constant in our kitchen. Maybe it's because we plant them, maybe because potatoes are versatile dishes that can be as said properly by the title of this book smashed, mashed, boiled, and baked, fried sometimes. So cooked in so many ways that they can meet the favorable thumb up from everyone or most of us.
We also cook them in the fireplace and they're delicious. Different taste for sure. More profound and intense.
In this book written by Raghavan Iyer we will be introduce in the reign of potatoes so many kind! and different, very diversified recipes taken from different places in this world.
A great tribute at the potato-world and at the diversified ways in which it's seen, baked, cooked, "treated" in the world and at the different kind of tubers as well!
I loved the enthusiasm with which this book has been written, a topic loved by the author so badly you will see!
I highly recommend it to all the potato lovers but in general this cookbook is indispensable in every kitchen of every American family.
It's colored, funny, plenty of great recipes some of them exotic, and also wonderful pictures. More than this: what can you ask?
