Anna Olson serves up this indulgent potato recipe in series 3 of Fresh.
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Pierce potatoes with a fork, then rub with butter and sprinkle with salt. Place each potato into an individual baking dish and bake for about an hour, until they yield when gently pressed. While baking, prepare gravy.
To make the gravy:
Add butter and flour to a small saucepot over medium heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until a rich brown, the color of peanut butter (this takes 7 to 10 minutes). Slowly pour in stock in a thin stream, whisking constantly, then stir in thyme. Bring to a simmer, season to taste and keep warm.
Cut an oval opening into top of each potato (you can reserve these for another use, such as Smoked Salmon Potato Skins). Scoop out most of the potato and mash with butter, and season lightly. Spoon mashed potato back into their skins. Ladle gravy into each potato and top with cheese curd. Return potato to oven to melt cheese, about 10 minutes, then serve immediately.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
