Quebec cheese fondue with roasted organic potatoes & smoked ham
This is a great spring dish. Use the nicest raw milk cheeses you can find. I would recommend a little raw milk Oka for body and some nice stinky goat or sheeps cheese for flavour.
1 lb. organic potatoes, washed 2 tbsp. organic canola oil or duck fat sea salt & freshly milled black pepper 8 slices good quality smoked ham ( optional ~ if you would like a vegetarian option use 4 handfuls of the mixed salad greens you get in your baskets ) 8oz. Cheese 1 cup homogenised milk 2 tsp. Cornstarch
pre heat the oven to 400 degrees toss the potatoes with salt & pepper and place on a baking sheet roast the potatoes until crisp approx. 25-30 minutes remove from the oven and keep warm heat the milk and cornstarch slowly in a heavy bottomed pan and add the cheese stir continually until the mixture is smooth and creamy divide the ham (or greens) between 4 diner plates, top with some of the roasted potatoes and nap with the cheese N.B. ~ as soon as asparagus is season you can add some roasted asparagus to the potatoes
