The truly cute thing about this is that this isn’t a statement meant for latinists alone; whoever wrote it clearly meant it to be understood by all thanks to his or her calque of a classical phrase. The definition of “all” implicit here is a little funny.

I have just verified that Charlotte potatoes are more than adequate for causa: they are yellow-fleshed, flavourful and hold together well. My only concern is that they hold together a little too well after boiling: the result seem to be only a short distance (on the right side, luckily) of the fateful singularity at which causa becomes a revolting protoplasmic blob of play-doh. (Amateur cooks: do not pretend you do not know what I am talking about.)
Est-ce qu’il y a des autres variétés françaises de pomme de terre que vous pourriez recommander pour la préparation de la causa?
