This easy to make, fall potato recipe was developed for the Farmstead Festival by chef Isaac Olivo, Executive Chef at the Mayflower Grace Hotel in Washington CT. His use of course grain mustard, sherry vinegar and fresh local herbs adds not only wonderful complexity to the flavor of the dish but also a delicious lightness.
