There was of course more to this wonderful roast by my pal Aimee than chicken and potatoes, but the crispy spatchcock chicken and super indulgent potatoes stole the show.
Grape Pickers Potatoes, a new concept to me, have been around for donkeys years. In fact, the dish was traditionally fed to the hard working grape pickers during the burgundy grape harvest.
Salt & Pepper
Line a heavy dish with the streaky bacon
Peel and slice potatoes thinly
Layer potatoes in the dish with cheese and salt and pepper
make a lid with the over hanging bacon
dot butter on the lid
bake for 1 hour
(Works brilliantly as a dish on it's own too with an avocado salad)
Pudding was supplied by myself and was this wonderfully easy and super delicious raspberry clafoutis recipe from Stylist magazine.
