We had a great time celebrating my Mum’s 60th Birthday on Friday night; we had beautiful flowers from my favourite florist Hacienda on Racecourse Road, a beautiful rich and airy chocolate cake from Chocolate and Flour at Morningside and I thought it only fitting to debut the beautiful beeswax birthday candles from Herriott Grace that I had been squirrelling away to use for a special occasion….. However, with all of this beauty the real show stopper of the night was ….. the mashed potatoes. I know, not glamourous at all! You must at some point try this recipe, I urge you, perfect for the rainy weather we are having. I woke up Saturday morning still thinking about them! The recipe is from Riverford (a favourite in our house), try it!
