I'm wondering too, what to do with little potato balls. I'm sure they are cute and all that, but I would be making potato balls for hours to satisfy the mob. Cubes are fine at our house.

Normally you par boil them and then slowly brown them in a frying pan with lots of butter.

You can also brown them in the oven with some beef drippings.

That's what I want to do. Seasoning them with salt, pepper and fresh rosemary, after frying.
The point is to present a "stylish" plate of small, nice potatoes. Friends, i need to become more aristocratic in my cooking habits

Cerise, THANK YOU

Tomorrow I definitely want to prepare that gorgeous potato pancake, I'll post some photo if I can make it properly.
About gnocchi, my grandma came from the Veneto region, Italy's gnocchi heartland. She always made gnocchi on sunday, and I kept stealing them raw from the table...
And I still have somewhere a postcard that a Mormon Elder sent to me when he went back to Idaho from Italy: a big truck carrying a giant potato, with a big text "We grow 'em big here!"

I can't think of the term that describes a neatly trimmed peeled potato in the shape of a football (roughly). Somebody help?

[this type]
of potato presentation is also very elegant and used in aristocratic settings all the time.

I would like to see the stick of butter for that potato.



I thought the Barrel Potatoes were unique, & easy to prepare (if one has the time to poke out all those holes. lol). Boil & serve with herb butter.
