      This was absolutely perfect - the mild fennel taste added to the potatoes beautifully! Guests loved it too, so it's gotta be 5*!

      This was a nice change from plain mash, must admit the fennel flavour was not very strong, mine was very young though. Used a little yoghurt instead of sour cream. Would definately make this again
