For connoisseurs: 63 different ways to cook a potato

Dear readers, we do not often – if ever really – publish information about recipes and such here on Potato News Today, as our regular followers know. But since it is weekend in most countries in the world where our readers are located, and because of all the many potato recipe related pieces that clutter my information stream daily, this one stands out… So why not? Here goes then…

Journalist Diana Lee writes in Fine Dining Lovers:

How many ways do you know to cook a potato? Mashed, fried, roasted, boiled, that’s four, but what about another 59 ways? Sounds impossible, but the guys at Bon Appétit have taken on the enormous task of cooking potatoes in every way imaginable, and put it all together into a video. 

Some of these cooking methods are obvious, some are just absurd (electrocuting a potato, for example), and some will surprise you (watch around 22:27), but one thing is for sure, it’s going to make you run straight out and grab some potatoes for dinner later…

What’s comforting is that there are a few ways that always just work, and you probably know them already. Cooking a delicious potato often calls for a good dose of salt and fat, as well as paying attention to keeping the moisture inside the spud. Another tip: boil your potatoes before frying for added crispiness. 

Dianna Lee ends her article by listing all the 63 ways shown in the video, which include the likes of George Foreman potato, rollie potato, air-fried french fries, blowtorched potato, and lastly – the electrocuted (pickled) potato…
