Was something every culture ate in times of famine and scarcity. All the recipes for potatoes along with adding potatoes to dishes to make it more "hearty" came from this time. And you know what? Most of these cultures didn't do so well living off of potatoes because it lacked a lot of nutritional content.

Now in times of plenty when other foods are available we are choosing to eat potatoes more than any other vegetation. No longer out of scarcity. It's like with fish, the most expensive fishes were always the most bland and whatever was left at the fish market was what the commoners ate, the salty fish. Now we are choosing to eat that bottom of the barrel fish on purpose and ordering it at restaurants!
