For the longest time, the world has been unkind to the potato. Over the past decade, potatoes have been painted as one of the worst things you could eat – they’re too high in carbs, bad for your diet etc, etc.

And honestly, it's time to set the record straight. Potatoes are a nutrition powerhouse. It really is up to you how you eat them and how often you do. 

The best thing about potatoes is how versatile they are. You can mash, fry, roast, stuff, crisp, bake or make salad with them. 

While it has become easier for me to drop bread from my diet, I have found it rather difficult to dump potatoes. Not only are they the most versatile food we have, but they are really delicious, comforting and filling. Imagine life without potatoes? What even is that life? I know I don't want to live it.

Even though I do love potatoes, the most important thing is moderation. Hence I now only have potatoes once a week. And only if I am really craving them. 

That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to having fun with potatoes in the kitchen and that's what we are showing you in the second edition of FOOD magazine. 

So if you are ready to have fun with potatoes again, this magazine is for you. From tips on picking the right potato for your meal, diet matters, and storage, to pages upon pages of various potato recipes. 

You are sure to find a couple that will make you once again appreciate the potato. It is time we recognise and give the humble spud more respect.
