Desiree potatoes have a firm, creamy tasting flesh making them ideal for smooth mash or being cooked in a sauce, such as our favourite Potato Dauphinoise/Dauphinoise Potatoes. Desiree are available across the major retailers and are easily recognisable by their lovely red skin and light yellow flesh. Desiree are normally larger, longer and oval shape.
Spiralizing a potato makes it quicker to cook, and adds a fun twist to your dish. This light salad looks and tastes great!
Boulangère potatoes are delicious with steak. Thinly sliced smooth potatoes, such as Desiree are slowly baked until they are golden on top and soft below
These punchy potatoes coupled with a moist tenderloin are great for a quick midweek roast, or even a centre piece at a dinner party to share.
This variety was named after Lady Eve Balfour – a pioneer of the UK organic movement. It has a uniform oval shape, creamy skin and pale tasty flesh. It performs well as mash, boiled or wedges.
