We’ve gone potato crazy here at field fare headquarters as we have just launched 3 NEW potato products.

Herby Parmentier Potatoes

Cubes of potatoes coated in herbs and garlic. Delicious as part of a main meal, or an addition to a salad or omelette

aviko recepten UK

Sweet Potato Chips

A delicious variant of the classic chip, crunchy and gluten-free, an all-round healthier chip.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and are a very good source of vitamin C.

So perfect for feeding the children or grandchildren at tea time!

Can be oven cooked or deep fried.

Sweet Potato Chips

Bubble and Squeak

Jamie Oliver is a fan of good old bubble and squeak and finalist Jack Layer cooked up a tasty batch in Master Chef.

We’ve produced our own Bubble and Squeak based on a traditional English recipe of mashed potato, cabbage and onions.  In 60g swirls, these can be easily microwaved or cooked in the oven … we prefer oven cooking them to give them a nice crunchy top!

So next time you’re at your local farm shop, why not try some for yourself!
