    “ Gourmet potatoes favoured by top chefs and typically found only on the menus of high-end restaurants are to go on sale in Tesco this week to avoid them going to waste.

    The move aims to ease a glut of fresh potatoes in the UK, with thousands of tonnes unused since the government ordered the closure of hospitality businesses on 23 March.

    The specialist potato grower Carroll’s Heritage Potatoes, based near Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland, supplies top restaurants across the UK with its distinctive, colourful spuds and works closely with celebrity chefs such as Tom Kerridge and Jamie Oliver.”

    Gourmet potatoes! Bah, a potato is a potato. Unlikely to be much different, not when cooked by me anyway.

    There is a big difference between varieties and taste. For example, some potatoes are very good for chips, others are not and will fluff-up and go soggy.

    After many years of just buying new potatoes, we have rediscovered the mash and roastiness that is Maris Piper.

    Can you 'fluff up' and at the same time 'go soggy'?
