Roast potatoes

A classic favourite that never disappoints. Our secret to making the perfect roast potatoes lies in the seasoning and roasting technique. We carefully coat the potatoes with a mix of aromatic herbs, then roast them until they are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

Roasted potatoes not only taste fantastic, but they also offer some nutritional benefits. They are a good source of potassium, vitamin C, and fibre. Plus, the roasting process brings out their natural sweetness without adding excessive fats.

Crushed potatoes

Crushed potatoes bring a twist to the traditional mashed potatoes. Our secret lies in the perfect balance of creaminess and texture. We gently boil the potatoes until tender, then crush them with flavours creating a rich and velvety potato goodness that’s hard to resist.

This type of potato offers numerous benefits as well. They retain more of the potato’s natural nutrients compared to regular mashed potatoes, making them a healthier choice. The slightly chunky texture adds a pleasant mouthfeel and pairs exceptionally well with a variety of main dishes.

Hash browns

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside—our hash browns are the epitome of potato perfection. We grate the potatoes and cook them to golden brown perfection on a hot griddle, creating a delectable crunch that makes them irresistible.

Hash browns not only add a delightful crunch to your breakfast but also offer a fulfilling start to the day. They provide a good source of carbohydrates for sustained energy throughout the morning.
