I love potatoes and here you get 5 of my very best recipes with potatoes.

The potato was used by Spaniards in the 16th century. In Europe, it took two hundred years before the potato was valued as a food resource and potato cultivation began on a larger scale. In Norway, the breakthrough for the potato as a raw material came in the decades around 1800, earliest along the coast in southern and western Norway, and with strong growth in the grain districts in eastern Norway and in Trøndelag after 1813 and most recently in northern Norway. Potatoes have since been a source of nourishment and a regular accessory at dinner tables in Norway. With these wonderful recipes, I hope it lasts for a few hundred more years.
