Jacket potatoes are cheap and filling but sometimes you want a change from grated cheese and baked beans! This recipe is packed with flavour for a very satisfying supper dish.
This is a recipe for mashed potato that's great served with fish. I love it with some freshly grilled mackerel or herring, and it's also extremely good with smoked fish.
This is the perfect accompaniment to gammon steaks, rich beef casseroles or spicy meat casseroles, and, as always, is great with bangers.
This very simple little salad makes a nice side dish. I like to serve it as a nibble before an oriental meal. If you have problems tracking down Japanese ingredients, try www.clearspring.co.uk
This is a quite stunning colour and the flavour of the parsley has an amazing affinity with potatoes. This is the perfect mash to serve with fish recipes, but it's also very good with boiled ham or grilled gammon steaks.

This, thankfully, is a Thai recipe that doesn't require all the speciality ingredients that are sometimes so elusive. The list of ingredients seems rather long, but it is made in moments and has a lovely fragrant flavour.
These are, believe it or not, low fat – just one dessertspoon of oil between four to six people, so not quite as wicked as it would first seem.
