One potato, two potato, three potato, four and on and on until you have mash coming out of your ears because spud fans, this is no less than a festival of potatoes. Yes that’s right, on February 12, Spitalfields City farm will be hosting their first ever spud day. In addition to potato printing and a ‘longest peel’ competition, experts will be on hand to offer advice on growing your own tatties. Potato scones and other starchy delicacies will also be on show between noon and 2 in a continued celebration of the humble spud. For the doubters among you, I leave you with these chastising words from the pensive sweet potato: ‘I think, therefore I yam.’ Didi Mae Hand
