***Please note the following edit from the cookbook editing team: The editors of the Melrose at Your Table would like to apologize for a print error on one of the recipes. This recipe in the cookbook has the incorrect oven temperature. Located on page 94 of the cookbook, the recipe Smashed Potatoes should read corrected to oven temperature of 400 degrees. Please see the recipe here.
