Incredible invention. When it all comes down to it, probably the greatest foodstuff of them all. Here’s the definitive ranking of the main types:
But who am I kidding? They’re all great!
Boiled (inc. new)
I want to go to this place in Sefton for this potato dish…
(scroll to second pic if it doesn’t automatically show that one)
(everytime I look at this photo I sing that Rufus Wainwright song “i don’t know what it issssssss but I got to do it”)
Where would jackets appear in the list?
Just behind cheese as the GOAT. Can’t think of a single bad version I can even cope with boiled at a push so long as they are well seasoned and smothered in butter.
Between hash brown and waffle, have amended.
King edwards > maris piper > rooster > Charlotte > kerrs pinks > jersey royal
A FEW TIMES I’VE BEEN AROUND THAT TRACK
SO IT’S NOT JUST GONNA HAPPEN LIKE THAT

New potatoes with pesto is nice actually.
Not having this one little bit.
Sometimes I buy that potato and spinach gratin side dish for two from M&S and have it all as my main. This is my secret potato filth
Haven’t included crisps in the original ranking as they’re a separate entity and will be given their own thread at some point if I carry on this series.
Ooofft that does look nice. What cheese do they stick on top?
Massive fan of hasselback at the moment. Bit of a faff in some respects to do.
I don’t know anything about it, except it does need more grease on it. Might take my own block of cheese and grater.
It’s a “Guinness rarebit pomme anna, bois boudran”
Really want potatoes for my lunch now.
Kinda really want to try this at some point
The unsung hero of the vegetable world, I suppose*. Often unspectacular and usually even a bit boring but they always seem to be there, quietly putting in a solid 7/10 performance every week.
Get the occasional star performance. Dauphinoise are generally good and all the other forms - even mash - can shine now and then.
*I say ‘unsung hero’, even though they are vastly overrated quite often.
