For the first few million years, the potato tuber was just a nifty
adaptation to help plants store a bit of energy underground. Then humans
discovered how nutritious it was, started experimenting with its
evolution, and created the perfect human food. Dr. Roland Kays, curator
of mammals at the State Museum, gives the evolutionary back-story to the
tuber that changed the world, and the Food Network’s Chef David
Britton cooks up examples of cuisine it has inspired.
