Famine Memorial, Dublin, Ireland
Famine Memorial, Dublin, Ireland

“The average consumption of potatoes per person in Ireland
[before the great potato famine of 1845]
was almost 8 lbs / day . . . and sometimes [potatoes were] the sole source of energy. . . .”

(Jeremy MacVeigh, International Cuisine, Delmar Cengage, 2009, p. 147)

And the problems following the Great Potato Famine were
one of the first wake-up calls
about the problems of monoculture and dependence on a single major species.
