SALT-BAKED POTATO MASH WITH SKIN CHIPS, PINK PICKLED ONIONS & BURNT-ONION BUTTER

Though this serves a couple as a side dish, I would probably not share! The humble jacket potato is a staple in the Johnston family home (for the non-Brits that’s a baked potato). Mum and Dad would have this for lunch with cheese and beans, or as one of the two veg on the old meat-and-two-veg plate. Way back when – when I was a budding young chef with zero culinary knowledge – I’d hear my peers tell these over-the-top stories of how their parents and grandparents inspired them to cook by making all these fancy dishes I’d never heard of. I’m not going to lie; I felt a bit jealous and thought that I was hard done by in not having cooking memories with my folks.
