A quiet meal


After the weekend's excess, baked potatoes seemed just right for dinner. The new crop of petite gold-fleshed tubers are best briskly scrubbed then rubbed with oil and salt before being baked for an hour or so. We cut crosses to let the heat penetrate. To serve, I never tire of Uwe Leue's fresh-pressed linseed oil and Siebengiebelhof's extraordinary Quark.

Uwe Leue sells his oils at the Kollwitzplatz market on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.
Siebengiebelhof's products are available at Kiepert & Kutzner and other organic shops in Berlin. Find a list here.


So simple but so delicious, baked potatoes are a real favourite of mine. I have to try that Quark too.

Vanessa, there are such fragile-skinned potatoes in the shops now too. Enjoy!
