Lemon & Herb Parmentier Potatoes

For the past year or so I have been using Pomora Olive Oil since discovering them at the BBC Good Food Show. They import really great quality olive oil and I love cooking with it, particularly the flavoured ones. I’ve previously brought you a few recipes using there oils such as this Salt and Pepper Cod with a Hot and Spicy Salad or this Bruschetta with their Basil Oil. I’ve more recently been trying their lemon oil, as well as the rosemary. I’ve not seen rosemary oil before so this is lovely thing to try. When you pour the rosemary oil you can see the actual flecks of rosemary in it too.

    I am a potato lover, always up for a new potato recipe. I have never tried rosemary oil, sounds like it can add a great herb flavour. I bought lemon and orange olive oil from Greece and I love adding them to salads, never thought of adding lemon oil to potatoes but I will be definitely trying it!
