COOK'S TIPS


Select small potatoes for best presentation. They will give attractive small round slices. For added colour use the green part of the leek.



To saute potatoes in a low-fat recipe, cook half the quantity (in a single layer in possible) in half the fat. Remove, then repeat with remaining potatoes and fat.
