    Heston's beurre noisette potatoes

    Beurre noisette is a great way to add richness and flavour to all kinds of things – here it gives the potatoes a lovely nuttiness

    Serves: 6


    750g bag Waitrose Baby New Potatoes, halved
    200g unsalted butter
    1 sprig thyme
    1 sprig rosemary
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    150g Heston from Waitrose Chicken Stock


    1. Place the potatoes and butter in a pan on a medium heat. Slowly cook the potatoes with the lid on.

    2. After 30 minutes, the butter should start to turn to a nutty brown. Lower the heat slightly so the butter doesn’t burn.

    3. The potatoes should be cooked after 30-35 minutes and have a nice caramelised colour. Add the thyme, rosemary and garlic, and cook for a further 10 minutes.

    4. Remove the potatoes from the butter. Strain the butter, discarding the herbs. Add the stock and, using a hand blender, blitz until the 2 liquids have come together. Season with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place in a pan over low heat and add the potatoes to warm through.
