Ingredients

  • 30ml Fresh parsely
  • 3 Cloves fresh garlic
  • 30g butter
  • 30ml Olive oil
  • 250ml Fine shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to season
Instructions
  1. Roughly chop 2 teaspoons each of oreganum, thyme and rosemary and 2 tablespoons each of basil and parsley.

  4. Measure out 30g of butter and 30ml of olive oil.
  5. Transfer the baby potatoes to a vacuum bag.
  6. Pour in the chopped herbs and garlic.
  7. Follow this with oil and the butter.
  8. Straighten out the top of the bag and vacuum seal the bag using your vacuum packer.
  9. It is a good idea to do a double seal just for security.
  10. Place the vacuum packed potatoes in a medium size pot and pour in enough boiling kettle water to cover.
  11. Place the pot over medium high heat and bring this to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and allow this to simmer for and hour and 20 minutes.
  12. Remove the bag from the pot, cut it open and pour the potatoes into a medium size roasting tin.
  13. Arrange the potatoes in the tin so that all the flat sides are facing upward.
  14. Scatter a cup of shredded Parmesan cheese over the potatoes and season everything liberally with salt and cracked black pepper.
  15. Roast this in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 20 minutes until crisp and golden.
  16. Remove the potatoes from the oven and serve immediately as the most outstanding accompaniment to your main course.
