crunchy roast potatoes

crunchy golden herby roast potatoes

I’m sorry – I have been extremely slack with my blog the last few weeks.  but what can I say… I swapped my frypan and spatula for my snowboard and beanie and have been carving it up with Josh (or atleast trying my hardest to) on the slopes of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak in Queenstown, New Zealand.  We had a great time, but I brought home a terrible flu which I can’t manage to shake… and which interestingly enough, rendered my fingers unable to type??

I hope my secret recipe for crunchy potatoes will make up for it. What is a lamb roast without roast potatoes?  And they can’t just be any roast potatoes – they have to be crunchy, golden potatoes with soft, fluffly centres.

So this is how I do mine…

thin crust jalapeno pizza

jalapeno pizza

I am a little obsessed with wild pepper pizzas (located in West Wnd and once upon a time also in Auchenflower). The thin crust is what makes them so good.  The jalapeno pizza is by far my favourite (even though it is just a starter) but even when we asked nicely, they wouldn’t give us the pizza base recipe (not that I blame them), so Josh has been trying for a while now to replicate the thin crust.  This one was a Byron creation – I think this is as close as we will get!

If anyone has any suggestions… please feel free to comment.

ps. if you do go to wild pepper pizza, you also have to try the pesto lamb!
