You mean all this time we could have been friends?

The Providores & Tapa Room, London

Peter Gordon and his Marlybone restaurant, The Providores & Tapa Room, represent the best of fusion cuisine. Until then, for me at least, it was nothing more than an unpalatable and ridiculous idea.

One of my favourite dishes was his mashed sweet potatoes with miso and wasabi, served with escargots. Sadly no longer on the menu, but not impossible to make.

2 Sweet potato - peeled and roasted then pureed


Yellow miso paste, about a teaspoon and a bit
Tamari, a couple of good dashes
Wasabi paste, a dollop
Mirin, a teaspoon
Sake, single shot

Warm the rinsed escargots in the blended ingredients and add to the still warm pureed sweet potato. Simple.
