Are you ready to bake/cook potatoes with me?
When Zoe asked me whether I want to host Little Thumbs Up in 2014, I was really honoured and excited. I ended up choosing potato as that was one of my favourite food.
Potato is the world's fourth-largest food crop, with ⅔ of the global potato production is eaten directly by humans while the rest are being fed to animals or used to product starch. There are around 5,000 different varieties worldwide! Potatoes fall basically into 2 main categories: starchy or waxy. Starchy potatoes are very fluffy and don't hold together very well when cooked, while waxy potatoes have a smoother texture and hold their shape while cooking. I used to love waxy potatoes a lot more as they taste less powdery, but I've now grown to love starchy potatoes, especially when they are mashed!
Potatoes are so versatile - they can be deep-fried, boiled/steamed, baked, roasted... and all taste so good! They can also be combined with many flavours and other ingredients to create a hearty and delicious dish.
So what are you waiting for? Grab some potatoes and start cooking now! Can't wait to see the many delicious potato recipes that you all have!
