Just because the potato is a simple ingredient doesn’t mean The Potato Cookbook is a simple collection of recipes. Join Australian cookbook author and culinary instructor Dale Whybrow and discover your favorite new spud preparations, like these super crispy potato peels. 

The next time you’re peeling potatoes, don’t throw away the peels. Baked in the oven, they make a crunchy, moreish snack or a great topping for soup. The secret is to wash and dry them well, toss them in oil and get them into the oven quickly. They’re so good, and so easy, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing it for years.
