Rosemary Potatoes & New Season Porcini
1 1/2 cups new potatoes
1 cup fresh porcini mushrooms or 50 gm dried porcini
2 tbs olive oil
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
2 fresh rosemary sprigs
1–2 tsp coarse sea salt, crushed Black peppercorns, crushed Pecorino or parmesan cheese, shaved for sprinkling
Cut the potatoes and porcini mushrooms into 1 cm thick slices.
With the back of a knife, pound the rosemary sprigs to release the flavour.
Heat the grill pan and add garlic and half of the oil. Fry the porcini over high heat for 5 minutes. Reserve onto a plate.
Add the remaining oil and rosemary to the heated pan. Fry the potato slices until soft, turning only once. This will take roughly 15 minutes over a medium flame.
Return the mushrooms to the potatoes. Season with sea salt and crushed black peppercorns
Scatter cheese shavings over and serve.
For a stronger flavour, use dried porcini or similar Italian products. Simply re-hydrate by soaking the dried mushrooms in boiling water for 30 minutes.
