Portugal’s most popular soup, caldo verde is a simple, delicious potato and cabbage mix flavoured with smoked chouriço. I love The Gourmet Potato’s Queen May in this traditional dish.

Potato Salad

Potato salad is my go-to dish for picnics, barbecues, any gathering. It’s delicious with virtually everything, especially when it’s made with The Gourmet Potato’s waxy kipfler potatoes.

Soups

Good potatoes thicken and enrich soups. Sometimes they're the star (think classic vichyssoise), other times a support act, but always adding beautiful flavour.

Mains

Potatoes are a great base for healthy main courses. They add body to casseroles, texture to savoury tarts and are the classic topping for shepherd's pie.

Q&A with Wentworth & Annette Hill

Nature creates something tasty and nutritious, then modern agriculture breeds out flavour and nutrients in favour of standardisation and durability. These potatoes have their own unique flavour as well as fabulous colour and texture; they’re the star of a meal, not just a side dish.

Apart from the natural flavour of the heirloom varieties, they're grown in basalt soil that's rich in organic matter in a cool climate with good rainfall. Robertson, in the Southern Highlands of NSW, where they're grown is over 700 metres above sea level which gives very clean air plus cold nights and warm days, which potatoes love.

All potatoes contain starch and there are two different forms of starch. Waxy potatoes (like kipflers) contain one form and floury (or fluffy) potatoes (such as xx) contain the other form of starch. Some potatoes (like xx) contain both types and are great all rounders.

Potatoes that haven't been sprayed with chemicals to prolong their shelf life will develop sprouts as they mature, they also develop more flavour at this time. They're vital, living foods that are perfectly good to eat. Just break the sprouts off and cook as normal. However don't eat green potatoes.

We recommend storing our potatoes in their boxes in a cool, dark place (7°-10°C) with good air circulation. Leave the dirt on them until you’re ready to cook them, it helps them retain moisture so they don’t dry out and soften and also helps protect their nutrients.

You can store potatoes in their box in the crisper of the fridge provided you aren't planning on using them to make chips; the cold affects the starch causing a sugar spike which stops them crisping up properly when fried.

Harris Farm Markets carry a range of potatoes from The Gourmet Potato.

Our potatoes are rich in vitamins C, B6 and B3, plus essential minerals copper, potassium, phosphorous and manganese.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
