  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. In a large roasting tin, toss the potatoes with some seasoning and 1 tbsp oil. The potatoes should sit in a single layer with some space around them. Roast for 30 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the gherkins and onions with the salad leaves. In a bowl, whisk the pickled onion liquid with the remaining oil, 1 tbsp water, the mustard powder and sugar.
  3. After 30 minutes, add the Brie to the roasting tin, moving the potatoes to make space, and bake for a further 5 minutes, until the cheese is starting to melt. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve in the centre of the table with the tray of potatoes and Brie, plum chutney – and plenty of forks for everyone to dig in.

Tip: Steps 1 and 2 can be done up to 2 hours before. Keep the bowl covered at room temperature until ready to serve, then add the cheese and bake until it’s melting.
