Synopsis

This comprehensive guide gives you everything you've ever needed to know about the humble potato, both in the ground and on the plate. It contains a guide to the best varieties to plant - from small, waxy salad potatoes to the floury types that are perfect for roasting - and full and foolproof instructions on when, where and how to plant them, and when to harvest both early and maincrop potatoes. There is also a wealth of potato recipes, from simple-but-delicious jacket potatoes and the creamiest mash to more unfamiliar ones, such as the Dutch dish 'Hot Lightning' and the Swedish 'Janssen's Temptation'.

The book is also packed with fascinating facts and history - did you know potatoes were the first vegetables to be grown in space? Illustrated throughout with pretty and nostalgic illustrations, this warm, comforting and sometimes surprising guide is the ideal book for gardeners of all skill levels who love to cook what they've grown.
