This recipe is from The Australian Women's Weekly's 'Potatoes: over 100 exciting ways to cook the humble spud', recently reprinted by popular demand. The recipe is "from the Apulia region in the south-east of Italy, (where) a tiella is both a homely recipe made with eggplants and potatoes, and the name of the dish in which it is traditionally cooked. You can also use desiree or spunta potatoes for this recipe." I am aware that potato types may differ from country to country, so I've included in the notes below the Women's Weekly's descriptions of the three types of potatoes recommended for this dish.
