Layered in a creamy gratin, shaped into rustic gnocchi with pesto, or puréed into a comforting soup, potatoes are a versatile ingredient in any cook's kitchen. As a light summer dish or a hearty winter supper, potatoes lend themselves to nearly any means of preparation and can be served at any time of year. Williams-Sonoma Collection Potato offers an array of more than 40 recipes for time-honored favorites as well as delicious new ideas. Whether you want to make perfectly crisp, golden French fries or try spicy roasted fingerling potatoes dipped in a tangy sauce, there are dishes in these pages to please everyone. A chapter of potato salads will help you find an innovative version of this classic using artichokes, feta cheese, or red bell pepper to take along on your next picnic. And, a chapter devoted entirely to breakfast will make your mornings brighter with offerings such as hash browns and sweet potato pancakes with orange-honey butter. Enticing photographs help you decide which dish to prepare, and photographic side notes highlight key ingredients and techniques, making Potato much more than a fine collection of recipes. An informative basics section and extensive glossary round out all you need to know to make the versatile potato a delicious part of any meal.
