Brian TurnerOne of the UK's favourite chefs, Brian Turner, has smashed his way into the supermarket to show the many tempting ways to use convenience potato products and devised the ultimate recipe plan for the British Potato Council - 'Seven Ways with Potatoes for Seven Days'.

This is one of the recipes he has created for the British Potato Council.

As well as regular TV appearances on Ready Steady Cook and Food and Drink, Brian was also resident chef for many years on Granada's This Morning, eventually having his own series Out to Lunch and Anything You Can Cook.
