"There is poetry in a pork chop to a hungry man."
-Philip Gibbs, Writer
This is a great recipe -- one where you really should use fresh herbs. While fresh is always going to make your food taste better, some recipes can get by just fine with dried herbs. The rule of using 1/3 the amount of dried herbs to fresh works in recipes where the herbs play a supporting role and arenít the flavor that is being focused upon. When the herb is center stage, as in this recipe, itís best to use fresh.
A lot of recipes call for a great deal of oil or other fat when cooking. Most dishes can get by with less oil and roasting potatoes is a good example. Because fats won't evaporate like other liquids, they doesn't have to be replenished during the cooking process and a little bit goes a long way.
Another approach is to use a spray oil (see Oil Spray). Simply spray the bottom of the roasting pan lightly and then coat the potatoes (or other vegetable / fruit to be roasted) with a light spray of oil.
