Greek Potatoes

As a child my aunt would always make it a point to take me to the local Greek fest that happened every summer. I remember it being such a treat. I loved watching all of the dancing, listening to the upbeat music and of course eating the best of what Greek food has to offer. One of my favoruite Greek dishes has to be roasted lemon-garlic potatoes. I love how the sour lemon and powerful garlic flavours compliment the humble flavour of the potato and the herbaceous notes of time and rosemary scattered throughout. Funnily enough, the last time I made greek potatoes was years ago when I first started cooking. I think I was maybe 14 and I mistakenly took 4 cloves of garlic for 4 bulbs. Needless to say they were some powerful potatoes and I learned a valuable lesson. I promise, these guys turned out much better then my previously ill-fated batch.
