Johanna Konta

Jose Andres
I like both potatoes and rice. You can do a lot with both of them. But if I could eat only one carbohydrate for the rest of my life, I wouldn’t choose bread, potatoes or even noodles. I’d go for rice instead; I eat more of that than anything else.

My father was a tailor. He worked from seven o’clock in the morning until seven at night. At least when he got home, my mother always cooked him a very good dinner. Lots of potatoes, I remember; he used to knock them down like a dose of salts. He needed it, after a 12-hour day.
Harold Pinter

Bands are always told, ‘Nobody wants to hear your new stuff – just stick with the meat and potatoes – that’s what people come for.’ That’s only half-true. I know if I went to see U2, I would be thrilled if they did ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,’ but I’m equally as thrilled to hear their new stuff.
Ann Wilson

Graham Elliot
I’m always cooking big veggie curries for friends with tons of spices, coconut milk, chilli – I’ll saute potatoes in the spices, then cook them with all the flavours and stir in some chickpeas and spinach at the end before serving it on a bed of sesame brown rice. It’s easy to do and tastes amazing!
