Baked, boiled, fried, mashed, in any way, shape or form, potatoes are delicious. These starchy tubers, native to the Andes, can be divided into two categories — starchy or waxy — each of which lends itself particularly well to particular culinary uses. Want light and fluffy mashed potatoes, a particularly good baked potato, or an excellent French fry? Use a floury potato. Looking to make a perfect potato salad, a great gratin or fabulous roast potatoes? Go for waxy potatoes instead.
