Herbed Garlic and Seaweed Potato Chunks
January 4, 2021
Potatoes are one of the most versatile ingredients to have in the kitchen. Generally, potatoes can be categorized into one of the two categories: Waxy or starchy.
To get potatoes that are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside when roasted, we recommend using all-purpose potatoes or potatoes with medium starch content. The varieties available in Australia are Desiree, Dutch Cream and Sebago.
