This is just sad:
THE art of cooking a humble jacket potato is lost on almost half of the under-30s, a survey has found.
A similar number have no idea how to prepare roast potatoes to accompany a Sunday joint or simple dishes such as shepherd's pie, fishcakes, and leek and potato soup.
The potato is a nearly perfect food because it can be fixed so many different ways to accompany so many different kinds of food. These kids today, I tell ya.
And there'll never be an end to new ways to cook them. Recently discovered: Prepare them as big, fat steak fries, sprinkle liberally with Old Bay seasoning and serve with a cucumber sauce. We found this at a local restaurant that called them Scoobies, and it's a pretty easy recipe to duplicate.
