Surely there will be a lot of recipes, because only bread is more popular than potatoes, but bread has been known to mankind for so long that it is simply impossible to compete with it. However, potatoes are also not so simple, and quite often we see dishes with potato on the table.
But potatoes appeared in Europe not so long ago. Potatoes were first brought to Spain in the 16th century by conquistadors who discovered potatoes in America. At first, they did not know anything about potatoes and sometimes used it in a very original way. For example, in 1565, King Philip II sent potatoes to an ailing Pope as medicine. However, he did not lose, because the potato really has considerable potential. And medicinal too.
And very soon the potatoes were scattered all over the earth. Potatoes have become almost the main dish in poor families. They ate it boiled, fried, baked, cooked soups, prepared salads and snacks, used it as garnishes for other dishes, made flour from it and baked potato bread.
Because the potato turned out to be an amazing product - simple, tasty and nutritious.
