Mash potatoes in butter, and red wine instead of milk.

The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, 1954

My fourth, and perhaps final, cook book for the Herbarium goes underground:  The dusty potato, native of the Andes, is paired with elegant examples of marbleized paper.  As an element in cooking there are few more universal foods.  Included are recipes from Peru, Brazil, India, Belgium, England and the United States.

  1. I still can't believe how magical you managed to make all those potatoes. They are just beautiful and I think it's one of your best books to date.
