Potato cookery is deceptively exacting. Recognizing this, How to Cook Potatoes provides succinctly valuable council. In fewer than 100 pages it offers illustrated, step-by-step instructions for preparing potatoes in the most commonly enjoyed ways--recipes, tips, and information that all cooks can use.
Beginning with an enumeration of potato types and the preparation methods appropriate to each, the book then explores potato-cooking methods--baking, roasting, mashing and frying, among them--with recipes for basic variations like Mashed Potatoes with Pesto. Included also are chapters on potato salad, hash browns, latkes, and potato gratin, all of which offer definitive techniques for producing best results. Throughout, underlying techniques are explored and illustrated (french fry slicing is one), and sensible tips abound (for example, boil unskinned potatoes for fluffy mashed potatoes).
A true primer, the book is part of the Cook's Illustrated Library series. Like the magazine, the books are dedicated to presenting tried-and-perfected recipes and cooking techniques in a concise, approachable way. --Arthur Boehm
