Roasted, boiled, fried or stewed, everyone loves potatoes at mealtime. They are such a versatile food that even the way they’re cut radically changes their essence: from being a valuable food for basic nutrition, absorbing all the flavour of a dish, to becoming a festive snack, often paired together with ham.
With four thousand varieties of potatoes worldwide, it’s difficult to choose the best, because under certain ultra-local growing conditions, they can be invincible. We can highlight three distinct Spanish denominations, each with its own quality certification: the PDO (protected designation of origin) small Papas Antiguas de Canarias, in contrast to the PGI (protected geographical indication) Prades potato, with its sweet taste and aroma of chestnuts and the creaminess of the PGI (protected geographical indication) Potato of Galicia.
