Sloan-McIntosh has scoured the world and dug up dozens of recipes that introduce the potato in every ethnic variation and in every part of a meal from breakfast through appetizer, main course, and even dessert.... The author provides a detailed guide to the wealth of potato varieties and to their many uses. Recipes lean toward Sloan-McIntosh's own Irish heritage, but she overlooks scarcely a tradition.... Even potatoes' South American roots are acknowledged with a Peruvian casserole of potatoes, cheeses, and chile pepper.-- (12/15/2011)
