Really enjoyed this more than enough for two people, though the comment by David Anderson about the potatoes being 5cm thick is wrong, the recipe says point 5 cm in other words half a cm thick, common sense really. - 07 May 2015


Some nice tastes in this but as with the other review the cooking times are all wrong and who puts slices of potato 5cm thick on a casserole. My partner was not impressed at all . Could be much better. - 24 Jul 2014
