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.
This Pancake Day 2018 why not try a something with a twist, this savory pancake recipe comes with a household favourite, the potato! With the potato at heart of the dish it allows the flavours of salmon and asparagus to mingle with the delicious pancake base. Savoury pancakes are just as easy and quick as their sweet counterpart and are Perfect for Pancake Day!
