‘When you have a waffle maker, everything looks like a waffle!’ So says a dear friend of mine and I reckon he’s not wrong. It’s full steam ahead on the waffle wagon here at Kavey Eats and today it’s the turn of the humble potato. Our first experiment with potato waffles used mash potato mixed ... Read more »

Presenting the Röstizza: A Potato Rösti Pizza Base

Potatoes have been getting a bit of a bad rap lately. The last couple of decades have witnessed a vilification of carbs; the noughties in particular saw a surge in uptake of diets advocating a severe reduction of carb intake.

Variations on Potato Dauphinoise

I’ve shared three Potato Dauphinoise posts on Kavey Eats over the years – the easy dauphinoise recipe I learned at the Waitrose cookery school, a caramelised onion and potato dauphinoise and a sweet potato and ham dauphinoise.

Heart Attack Potato Salad

I’d never made a potato salad before this one. Well… actually I had made warm salads that include potatoes… but never the classic version I think of when hearing “potato salad” – new potatoes bound together in a mayonnaise-based dressing. Several years ago, the American Head of IT where I worked shared his potato salad advice ... Read more »
