I would venture a guess that we all have.  I can't find it now but we had a book about all things potato published in Germany I think when that was your only reliable option.. Some recipes were quite tasty sounding. At that time I guess "belly filling" was the goal.

Molly Stevens teamed up with Roy Finamore to write One  Potato, Two Potato.  This is very, very large book which, unfortunately is not available in Kindle edition.

No it was grey, black and white. No color. Cheaply printed out of post war necessity I think. My grandfather was a POW and went off potatoes for a while after release cuz that wasprimary food for prisoners - but at least he was fed.
