The potato has to be one of the most versatile and delicious foods out there. Let me explain.
There are times in life when a bowl of creamy mash, a plate of hand cut chips or a bag of hand cooked crisps are just what you need. And then… there are Mum’s roast potatoes! I could go on and on. I’m not sure if my love of potatoes is from growing up surrounded by them or if it’s just because Lidstone’s Potatoes taste so great. Over 50 years of experience, the rich South Devon soil, the gentle maritime climate and a lot of passion are a true recipe for success.
Affectionately known by my friends as the ‘Potato Princess’ at university, I made sure we always had plenty of potatoes to fill us up so we could spend our money on going out. Since then, our potatoes have come in handy for thanking friends for favours and for Christmas gifts. Nothing says thank you like a gift of home grown goodness. However, it was only very recently I realised what an important part of my life potatoes are.
