It’s amazing how the simple potato is so versatile; just with a few techniques and ingredients its transformed from a not so pretty looking vegetable to something utterly delicious and satisfying; from the basic french fries sprinkled with a bit of salt, to the healthier wedges sprinkled with sea salt & herbs, to the packaged potato chips and to mashed potatoes made with cream & butter.
