There are dozens of different varieties of potatoes: yellow, blue and red, round, elongated, oval and crooked. However, only varieties that are particularly productive and resistant are usually found on the market. Far too little, more and more people say. They remember the potato taste of their youth and see the potato not as a side dish but as a culinary highlight in their kitchen.

We show people who are committed to the diversity of the potato. They have often been insulted as nutcases and eccentrics, but they love their homeland, which is why they advocate regional differences in agriculture. And they love the potato, the modest vegetable that enriches our menu in so many ways: rosemary potatoes, potato soup, potato ravioli with fresh morels, mashed potatoes or simply colourful boiled potatoes with butter.
