"The recipe team,

Thanks for the recipe for tapas potatoes, I've used it so many times that I thought it was time to email some feedback and thanks. You do state the teaspoon of chili flakes is optional but perhaps this should be stressed for the benefit inexperience cooks, i used a pinch and it was more than enough. If I send you my own adapted version would you publish it? Sue Middleton"
