Potatoes are often put in a negative light. When you drop a “hot potato” it means you pass on a problem to someone; a person who is referred to as a couch potato is usually inactive in-front of the television for hours and the list goes on…
At Truola we believe that the potato deserves better than that. It’s a very versatile vegetable and it’s a great part of European cooking tradition. Potatoes originally come from the Incas in Peru and made their way to Europe in the 16th century.
