I love the theme of the relationship between cooking and love. I think that both gastronomy and couple relationships are almost always favored by experimentation and variety, something that allows breaking the monotony and keeping the flame alive by continuing to discover new nuances.
A few days ago, to accompany a roast chicken with some potatoes, I bought a package of those tender and tiny ones that are generally sold in various types and colors. Some of the potatoes were Purple majestic or blue potatoes, which are, as the name implies, a rare purplish color both inside and out. I remember seeing them I thought: If love enters the kitchen, and food enters through the eyes, the color of these potatoes does not hurt me.
The blue potato is very different from the others because it is somewhat rougher and slightly drier. What I did not know and was a pleasant surprise is that in addition to the color and texture, these potatoes stand out from the rest because they contain anthocyanin, a natural antioxidant, so they are healthier. The only difficult thing is going to be finding them, because it is not that they are sold everywhere like the most common types of potatoes. But my husband and I liked them, and even the children ate them, so we decided to add them more frequently to the menu. Can you imagine a blue mashed potato? I'll tell you the face of my next dinner guests.
