2 Maris Piper potatoes, butter, oregano, black pepper, kamalata olives
Mashed potato is without a doubt my favourite food. It is the ultimate in comfort and is wonderfully versatile. Much like everything goes with toast, in my humble opinion you can add pretty much anything to mashed potato from citrus to cheese to spices to vegetables and it will still be absolutely divine. This, my latest adventure in rich, indulgent - knock you off your socks with flavour - food is simply fabulous.
1) Peel and dice the potatoes, then boil in hot salted water for 20 minutes.
2) Peel and crush a clove of garlic and saute in a little butter with freshly chopped oregano.
3) Mash the potato, adding the garlic and oregano butter until silky-smooth in consistency, then pit and halve the kamalata olives and stir through.
