    Like you I am not fond of the “spud” probably because I was born and raised in France with a French mother and an italian Father. Pasta was our daily staple.
    But I love the new potato season!!
    I am very intrigued by this cake and I’ll let you know how I get on!!

      I remember when pasta came to the small country town where I grew up – after reading about it in cookbooks, I was SO excited. Loved those little shells, even if I did cook them to death in chicken soup!

  2. That’s an epic cake alright Caroline, more than worthy of the day that’s in it – will have to put it on my spud recipes to do list (and, for what it’s worth, I confess that I was not necessarily fond of the regularly appearing boiled spud when I was a youngster, though I always had time for roasties, even then!)

    • Caroline says:

      I can’t believe that there was ever a time when you didn’t eat potatoes! I wouldn’t even touch roasties when I was young and chips had to be very thin before I’d go near them. I’m quite surprised that I didn’t starve myself to death although my family always attributes my lack of height to the no-potato diet.
