Hot Potatoes Do you remember your last great potato? Nothing else, just the potato. No? Well, that probably puts me in a distinct,and miniscule minority. I remember my last great potato and the one before that, and the one before that. They comearound once every two or three years. Simply boiled, with a slightly waxy and dense texture and richness of flavor that teases at sweetness paired with an encompassing earthiness and explosion of potato flavor.

OK, perhaps I am a minority of one, but I love my potatoes, and while I usually enjoy them simply boiled and served with some cheese and salumi I am not against giving them the spotlight once in a while. The greatest potato dish on earth is a real torta di patate. Mountain potatoes, a wood fired oven, a giant potato pancake crispy on the outside and barely held together in creamy yet toothsome ecstasy by a mere dusting of flour. We’re not going to be seeing much of that though, so here are five killer potato recipes to take your mind off more pressing matters, and the sad fact that there will be no torta di patate this weekend!

  • Roast turkey? Nah. Serve it with a pork roast or grilled pork loin or tenderloin. And a Pinot Noir would also be a great accompaniment for both the meat and potatoes.
