Kleftiko Potatoes (4)

Here is another recipe for potatoes from Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics”. The potatoes cook in the liquid soaking up the juices and turning soft and flavoursome. Any remaining oil should be spooned over the potatoes before serving.

Tartiflette Baked Potatoes (4)

I have been continuing to cook my way through Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics” and am very much looking forward to her new book coming out in September which i have to confess to pre-ordering. These potatoes are based on a favourite french gratin dish popular in the Savoy Alps and just what you need after a day on the ski slopes, or walking in the mountains, or indeed any time.

Spicy Roasted New Potatoes (4)

My most recent new cookery book purchase ( and i do try to resist) is “Falastin” by Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley. They are part of the Ottolenghi team, but this book celebrates the people and the food of Palestine. This is the first recipe i have tried and it’s very good.
