Where would we be without potatoes? They are an essential accompaniment to many European and North American meals and can be cooked in so many different ways. I know the Italians do pasta different ways and the Japanese reshape rice giving it imaginative names, but have you ever stopped to think how inventive people have been with the humble potato.

One meal that I recall with great pleasure in Prague was based around a potato cake topped with a garlic and yoghurt dressing. I am sure it would be relatively easy to recreate.

I have heard people say they did not enjoy the food in Prague. Go there in winter and the food really comes into its own. It is perfect for the cold climate.

Potato salad, too, can be ideal in in a cold climate. Just make it a warm salad.

 

Warm Potato Salad

4-6 potatoes peeled or scrubbed

6-8 slices of bacon chopped (pancetta also works well)

1 onion chopped finely

1/2 cup of chicken stock

1 apple cored and sliced

salt and pepper to taste

Cut the potatoes into sizeable chunks. Parboil the potatoes in plenty of water with about a teaspoon of salt until 2/3 cooked. In the meantime, in a suitably sized pan, fry the bacon until just browned. I do not find it necessary to add extra oil first as the bacon makes its own lubricant. Next add the onions and fry until soft, pour in the chicken stock and add the parboiled potatoes. Cook gently for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the liquid is mostly absorbed. If you fear the potaoes are getting over cooked, remove from the pan and reduce the liquid further. Add the remaining liquid to the potatoes

Just before the salad is ready, lightly brush the apple slices with oil and grill until just turning brown. Decorate the potatoes with the apple slices and freshly ground pepper. Take care adding extra salt as the bacon and the stock contribute salt to the salad.

Serve warm/room temperature. This recipe is also good if you fry slices of fennel in olive oil and add to the salad.
