Recipe: Spicy Spanish-style potato rosti

Today I’m back in the kitchen. Hooray! I recently acquired a fabulous Microplane Julienne slicer (love a new gadget) so am using it to slice all manner of vegetables in style. It’s great for producing little slivers of potato which make for the perfect rosti. I’ve recently returned from Spain and love the flavours of […]
