The best potato salad ever?

I still have some of my baby new potatoes left, they are slightly past their best so sautéing is a good way to give them a new lease of life and realise their inner buttery-ness. My Mother Hubbard’s fridge doesn’t have too much to escort them as my Ocado delivery is not due for many hours but all is not lost. There’s an unopened packet of Jamón de Trevélez from my Action Against Hunger goodie bag last week so a few rosy slices torn and strewn amongst the golden tinged potatoes seemed a perfect accompaniment. And for a final flourish a couple of spoonfuls of the utterly gorgeous Stark Naked basil pesto let down with a few glugs of my absolute favourite basil-tastic olive oil –Tornatore Extra Pesto.

So a simple exploration into what is at the bottom of the fridge netted a truly stupendous hot potato salad – possible the best ever?

I have just stumbled upon your blog. I love the clean design and fantastic photos. I am a blogger myself and always thought that design was key and you have certainly captured that! There are so many food blogs out there these days and being different to all the others is key. I have just started www.ifoods.tv which is a website for chefs, foodies and food bloggers to hand out, share recipes, photos and videos. When i was blogging I always thought i should be getting more traffic as my blog was getting lost in the masses of stuff out there so my new site is aimed at giving food bloggers and chefs a bigger platform! Hope you enjoy it and keep up the good writing and design here! I have now bookmarked you so will be regular reader, Cheers!
