Potato & Rice Bible
My good friend Laura got me this book for Christmas. I am so excited to start using it.
I just read the introduction and cooking techniques and learned two thing.
1. That when the skin is green on your potato it is poison. You should cut it off.
2. That to get that wonderful salt crust like Outback you wash the potato and then rub on olive oil and then kosher salt....mmmmm....yummy
To get kind of serious, who knew that there were so many different types of potatoes. I thought there were just three (red, yukon, & russet). The book doesn't list an exact number, but the listings go from page 44 - 72. That is a lot of different kids of potatoes.
