Pink eye potato chips


This method to make oven baked chips is super simple! We are so lucky in Tasmanian with all the amazing produce we have available. When I had The Mussel Boys restaurant open people from other states and countries just loved our Pink eye potatoes, and Pink eyes make the best Potato chips!

You will need:
Pinkeyes Potatoes or other good chip potatoes. I like to use sweet potatos sometimes too, they are delicious but not as crisp.
sea salt

Scrub the potatoes (peel if you prefer but I don’t if they are clean) and cut them into about a 1 cm thick slice then cut each slice into a 1 cm ish thick chip. Put the chips in a plastic bag with a drizzle of oil and give them a good shake to coat the chips. Pour the chips out of the bag  onto a baking tray covered in baking paper and bake in a moderate to hot oven (180 C) for about 20 minutes or until cooked and crisp and soft on the inside and season with sea salt.

You can find a crinkle cutter knife at my online store eloiseemmett.com

I have been doing some product photography for local businesses including the Mizzle online store and Bangor Vineyard. You can find rates for product photography here and a guide to what it will cost you to employ me to photograph your products for your website, advertising or your book! You might not get a second chance in the fast paced online world, product photography is so important, and my rates are affordable if you stick to the one style and set up, which looks nicer and consistent on a online store, and I work quickly!! I will  have more time available in May and June.

I have some of my canvas photography prints prepared to hang in Patanella Cafe in North Hobart they will be there from this weekend for a month so pop in and check them out. They are from the popular flower series I had on display for my Seafood Everyday Book launch last year. I will post more about this on the weekend!
