Roast local partridge with creamed potato & roast root vegetables
MethodPreheat oven to 170�C.
1. Dice all the vegetables to the same size and place them into a roasting tray, season with salt and pepper and add a good splash of olive oil before mixing, then place into the oven.
2. Whilst the vegetables are roasting, put your potatoes into a pan with the skins still on. Cover with cold water, add a pinch of salt and bring them to the boil, then simmer until cooked. Cooking in the skins will giveyou a drier mash which is easier to work with when adding butter and cream, leaving a richer taste.
