As my neck is playing up I am keeping my intros short!! After March you will dear reader get a full dose of my jabber!!

Starters that we love are French fries but I prefer country wedges that I had once in some restaurant.

Here I tried to replicate the flavours I remembered. Of course I could not get rid of my Indian tastes out and used chilli powder.

Country Wedges

Recipe Adapted  from here
  • 4 potatoes, washed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • ½ tsp sage
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)
  • Salt

  • Add the oil, salt and pepper and the spices and use clean hands to toss the potatoes until they are well coated with the oil.
