I got a new kitchen doodah, I have wanted one for ages. I neeeeeded one for ages, but now I have got it, I am not sure it is thaaaat necessary.
Presumably this is what happens to doodahs, just before getting buried in the bottom kitchen draw.
However, in an effort to use this brand-new zester at least once, a bit of time was spent looking for an appropriate recipe but that was not be difficult as we are right in the midst of citrus season.
Abel & Cole have a Citrus Potato cakes recipe which tickles the taste-buds, honestly this zingy cakes do. They are extremely quick to make, not much more difficult than baking potatoes, goes really well with fish, so exhume your zester and give this recipe a go.
