Description: This cookbook is for people who love potatoes. Nothing could be better than having the best potato recipes at your fingertips with Beyond Burlap. This cookbook features the russet potato that made Idaho famous, but you will see that it's not the only potato featured. Here are almost 200 kitchen-tested potato recipes using a variety of potatoes. 

We think the recipes in Beyond Burlap are the best potato recipes ever found in one place. There are old favorites with hints to help you bake, scallop, or mash a better potato. You also will find many of our favorite potato recipes collected from friends, neighbors, and relatives who keep cooking those beloved hand-me-downs. We include favorite potato recipes from some of Idaho's best chefs. After much evaluating, only potato recipes withstanding the scrutiny of our testers are found in Beyond Burlap. 

We kept Beyond Burlap simple pie and easy to use, but still a cookbook that will appeal to all potato fans, whether experienced cooks or not. Some days you have less time to prepare that "potato" than others, so we included quick-and-easy potato recipes. If watching your weight is a concern, there are potatoes for you, the calorie- conscious cook. Vegetarians will find a wide variety to suit their needs. Many of the recipes are aimed toward families who gather for good food and good conversation. Finally, finish your meals off with some of the best desserts imaginable -- made with potatoes. 

Burlap is that it introduces some of the wonderful places in Idaho. Highlighting just a few of our well-known locations, we show you a bit beyond the potato. We invite you to find out more about our state. In the back of the book, you will find sources for more information. We also have included some stories from Idaho authors about living in Idaho. Their stories will make you laugh as you experience the fun of our "famous potato" state.
