Surfing in Biarritz

Straight from the Aquitaine, where I must have spent 15 summers, surfing and windsurfing. A wonderful area of France that the British seem to ignore. Markets and fresh produce everywhere, a great place for a holiday, unless it rains. This dish is regularly cooked in the camper van!

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into small chunks so they cook evenly
  2. Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water for 20 minutes or until very soft.
  3. Drain the potatoes and return to a low heat for a minute or two to dry out a little.
  4. Mash the potatoes or pass thorough a ricer, beat in the butter, milk and seasoning, then fold in the ham, peppers and parsley.


Roast some garlic and squeeze the pureé into the potatoes as you mash them.

Roast the peppers before chopping them.

Any leftovers shaped into small patties and fried in olive oil make a rather good accompaniment.
