One of my customers asked me if we added crack to these potatoes—he found them addictive. So do many other folks. To be truthful, there is really nothing special about them; they are just good organic russets, cooked gently with garlic and rosemary and fried. Then they’re tossed with pecorino, which adds umami, salt, and fried rosemary leaves. That is it. In any case, if you find them addictive, I warned you!
