Café de Paris roasties

Despite the name, Café de Paris butter actually originated in a Geneva restaurant of the same name in the 1930s. Packed with spices and umami flavour, it’s also great with steak and oil-rich fish like salmon.

Ingredients

  • 1.5kg baby potatoes
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil

  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp capers
