The warm climate of Cornwall produces tender young vegetables earlier than other parts of the U.K. For a luxury touch, use clotted cream instead of double cream. Dress the potatoes while still warm, even if you are serving them cold, as this allows the flavours to be absorbed.

  1. Cook the potatoes in their skins in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, until tender.
