Know Your Potatoes Infographic

Before we share how to make the world’s best roast potatoes, we thought you might find this Infographic handy. It shows the best potatoes to use for mashing, smashing, and roasting. They have covered 4 popular varieties.

Yellow Potatoes have a medium starch and a smooth and buttery texture. They are a great choice for baked, mashed, and roasted potatoes.

Red potatoes have a waxy texture that stays firm throughout the cooking process. Their thin skins make them perfect for mashing without having to bother to peel.

Russet Potatoes are a high starch potato which makes them ideal for mashed potatoes and baking. They are also the classic choice for french fries.

Fingerlings are not ideal for mashing, they are however great for when roasted wholly. They are also ideal for potato salad.

Here’s what the creators have to say about their recipe and tutorial.

“In this video, Kenji López-Alt teaches you how to roast the best potatoes of your life. These roast potatoes maximize the crisp-to-creamy contrast in each chunk of potato.

We’ve tested and retested every variable, from cut size to potato type to boiling and roasting methods. The result is this recipe, which we firmly and un-humbly believe will deliver the greatest roast potatoes you’ve ever tasted: incredibly crisp and crunchy on the outside, with centers that are creamy and packed with potato flavor.

We dare you to make them and not love them. We double-dare you.”
