Ground Rules

  • Potatoes have to be the ‘main star’ of the nomination. ie the dish can contain more than potatoes but it can’t function without the potato ingredient.
  • It can also be the “co-star” of the show if you will and share the “Top billed actor” slot of the ingredient lists.
  • The topic of “fries” will be tackled once we get there in the podcast. (Mini Spoilers: Basically it was decided that the category of fries is huge and could basically be it’s own podcast. But if a fry came up during the episode we would need to be a bit more specific).
  • Other names for this episode for clarity sake is: Top 5 Potato Foods and Top 5 Ways to Serve a Potato.
