  1. Thats not even the best part, he knew the french people wouldnt go along with it just because he said so even if he gave them away; So he posted guards around his fields to make the potatoes seem more valuable and instructed them to accept bribes and let people “steal” the potatoes until they had develop a taste for them.

  2. If this guy didn’t get force fed potatoes for torture I wouldn’t get to enjoy my favorite types of potatoes including scalloped, baked, twice baked, fries, mashed and chips

  3. If I ever get captured during a war, I hope it will be by an enemy who feeds me food that I find so delicious that I introduce it to Americans and name it after myself. That sounds better than my job, actually.

  4. Potatoes and Tomatoes were slow to be accepted by Europeans because they looked so much like Deadly Nightshade (in fact they are closely related). Tomatoes were originally grown as ornamental plants, because they looked so much like the deadly nightshade no one dared to try eating it.

  5.  “I spent the next three years in a POW camp, forced to subsist on a thin stew made of fish, vegetables, prawns, coconut milk, and four kinds of rice. I came close to madness trying to find it here in the States, but they just can’t get the spices right!”

  6. This isn’t the whole story – potatoes were actually introduced to France by an editorial writer who worked in a small French village of little renown. His efforts were ignored over the wealthy Parmentier’s, because he was just a common-tater.

  7. In classical French cookery, if any dish has Parmentier in the name, it means it has potatoes as the main ingredient or in the garnish (Potage Parmentier, Pommes de Terre Parmentier (potatoes done in the style of Parmentier), Hachis Parmentier etc)
