Carisma Potatoes

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

There is nothing better at mealtime than the humble potato – whether boiled, baked, mashed, roasted or fried. We think potatoes are possibly the most versatile crop to come out of the garden!

To celebrate all things potato, from 5 May to 1 June our Community Partner Coles and Mitolo Family Farms who grow Carisma potatoes are donating 8c from every kilo of Carisma potatoes sold (up to $75,000) to the Foundation.

Keep your eyes peeled on your inboxes and social media for some exciting potato facts, a Q&A with the team at Mitolo Family Farm, plus recipes from Stephanie Alexander, Courtney Roulston and Michael Wheldon:

For members of the Kitchen Garden Community, don’t forget to check out the Carisma potato resource on the Shared Table.

Carisma potatoes have a creamy melt-in-the-mouth texture and thin skins, perfect for mashing; or boiling and serving with dill, mint or parsley, olive oil or butter.

Stephanie Alexander has produced a wonderful spicy potato cake recipe, especially for Carisma potatoes! For a chance to win a Kitchen Garden Prize Pack send us a photo and recipe of your very own potato cake creation, to be published on the Foundation’s website.

The prize pack includes:

  • a $50 Coles Gift Card
  • a signed copy of Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids
  • our Kitchen Garden Journal
  • a Coles and Kitchen Garden Foundation children’s apron.

Email your photo to for your chance to win!
