Leek and Potato Soup

It’s Winter, so that means it’s time for a soup recipe. I fear however that this recipe Leek and Potato Soup is going to expose my weirdness. I’ve been making this Leek and Potato Soup for years and while it is delicious, even if I do say so myself, I was never completely happy with […]

Potato and Onion Rosti

Fried potatoes have always been synonymous with comfort food for me. That is probably obvious given my range of potato recipes already on the blog!

Masala Fries with Mango, Salsa and Raita

Creamy Potato Salad with Chorizo

I’ve been meaning to share this recipe for Creamy Potato Salad with Chorizo for some time now. I thought with the Bank Holiday approaching, you might be looking for ideas for food to make for a barbecue and this is the perfect side.
