1 kg new potatoes, scrubbed
100 g higher-welfare smoked pancetta or bacon
1 handful stale breadcrumbs
125 ml soured cream
125 ml fat-free natural yoghurt
1 bunch fresh chives, snipped
Boil the potatoes gently in salted water until tender, then drain well. Leave them to cool slightly.
Fry the pancetta or bacon until crisp, break up, then set aside. Fry the breadcrumbs in the pancetta or bacon fat until crisp.
Slice the potatoes in half and dress with the soured cream, yoghurt, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold in the pancetta and most of the breadcrumbs and scatter the top with the chives and remaining breadcrumbs before serving.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
