From the book

Jamie Oliver


1.6kg new potatoes
4 heaped tbsp natural yoghurt
4 tsp English mustard
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon
edible flower petals or fresh herb flowers, to serve


On the day: Wash 1.6kg of new potatoes, halving any larger ones, then cook in a large pan of boiling salted water for 15 minutes, or until soft. Drain well. Spoon 4 heaped tablespoons of natural yoghurt and 4 teaspoons of English mustard into a large serving bowl with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Finely grate in the zest of 1 lemon, squeeze in the juice, mix well, then toss in the warm potatoes. Season to perfection, tasting and tweaking.

To serve: It’s fun to sprinkle this dish with edible flower petals, such as marigolds, violas or nasturtiums. Fresh herb flowers would also work a treat. Serve the potatoes hot, warm or cold.
