Cook new potatoes slowly in the oven to keep all their flavour. The leftover oil makes an amazing base for dressings to finish grilled fish or meat

was supposed to be 2 stars not 1 - they weren't inedible, just not worth the trouble

Disappointing and not worth the effort. I expected the end result of this to be golden roasted new potatoes infused with the garlic, herbs and lemon. In reality, hubby and I agreed that the result was barely different from boiled new potatoes with a dollop of butter on top. The oil made them greasy, but didn't seem to benefit the cooking. The best thing about them was the roasted garlic that I squeezed over the potatoes once served, but not to the extent that I'd bother with all the faff again!
