Today I want to add a British touch to our brunch. Between an Oscar de la Renta muffin and a Bottega Veneta brownie, I cooked a recipe worthy of His Majesty. I wonder if Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Henry of Wales (i.e. the two Princes of England) like potatoes… I think so (especially Henry). Let’s bring to the table a baked potato for our guests. Baked potatoes recipes are numerous, ranging from simple baked potato with butter, to the super stuffed one. Don’t be afraid and let your imagination run wild, season it with whatever you like. Some ideas? Chicken curry, crispy bacon, basmati rice and vegetables, tuna and Swiss cheese. Do you want more? Shrimp, tomatoes, lettuce and black beans for a tasty punk potato in a perfect London-style. Let’s start with a basic recipe, with a delicate flavor that reflects the essence of the Trussardi fashion show. For the 100th-anniversary of the maison, the woman projected by the designer Umit Benan is a citizen of the world who loves to travel, wearing comfortable clothes and without any constraint. Washed silk, cotton, linen, cotton poplin and knit, in colors ranging from white, gray, blue, ocher, mustard and burgundy red. If we cannot travel physically, we can do it through the flavors, by bringing to our table food that comes from distant places. Try with this brunch, enjoy it and relax with style.it. Here we don’t have any white or black tie invitations, but a pajamas invitation or a cotton tracksuit one, and the dress code must be absolutely respected. You should never go to a bunch wearing heels: the stars and constellations could lash out against you.
Recipe. FOR 4 PEOPLE
4 big potatoes + 200g (7 oz) fresh cheese like goat cheese + 30g (1 fl oz) butter + extra- virgin olive oil + salt + pepper.
Wash the potatoes and prick with a fork. Brush them well with extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and place them on a baking tray. Bake at 200°C (392°F) for about 1 hour and a half. When ready, remove the potatoes from the oven and cut in half, but be careful: this is precisely what we call a “hot potato”. With the help of a teaspoon, remove the pulp (perhaps not all, leave a little attached to the peel) and place in a bowl. Add the fresh cheese, butter, salt, pepper and mix well until you get a smooth mixture you will use to fill the potatoes. Add more fresh cheese to serve and… Enjoy!
