A bit about Marfona

Marfona potatoes are short, oval shape potatoes with a smooth texture. Marfonas lend themselves perfectly to mash, wedges and boiled potatoes cooked in a sauce, particuarly PotatoDauphinoise/Dauphinoise Potatoes. With a golden brown skin and smooth buttery taste, you can mash these potatoes without butter and still enjoy great results.
