These absolutely delicious fritters are so easy to make and create such an impression when having friends over, that really there is no excuse not to give the recipe a try. Partnered with a simple yogurt sauce, topped with smoked salmon and you have the perfect meal for any dinner party. Alternatively serve them as part of a more generous harvest table, they may even end up being the star of the show. We  have to thank River lodge for sharing this fabulously tasty recipe with us.
