  • 4 large sweet potatoes (about 250 g each)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped, fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon of dry chile flakes or powder
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon chopped, fresh parsley chopped fine

For the sauce

  • 2 shallots
  • 50 ml of brandy or cognac
  • a few black peppercorns
  • 250 ml liquid cream
  • 1 tablespoon of meat concentrate


Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Remove capon stuffed with the Carlotena of the fridge.

Mix the honey, mustard, Rosemary, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper and black pepper in a small bowl and move with a spoon until well combined. Book.

Wash potatoes and, if necessary, scrape them so they are flat and firm on the cutting board.

Place a stick of wood on each side of the sweet potato (I use the Chinese wooden cutlery) and with the help of a sharp knife, cut the potatoes as thinly as possible without you get to the end. Sticks will help to avoid it but you have to be careful, because the sticks may not be sufficiently high to cover them completely.

Put sweet potatoes hasselback on an oven tray with a brush or spoon tip the mixture of honey on them, taking care of that mix well between the blades.

Put a little butter on top and a bit of fresh rosemary. cover with foil aluminium and let bake for about 45-50 minutes.

Then remove the hasselback potatoes from the oven, uncover and top with some chopped hazelnuts. Return to bake for a few minutes. Serve with a little parsley chopped on top.

Place the capon on a baking tray and bake 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and cut into thin slices.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan put the shallots with a little butter. When soft, add the brandy and peppercorns and bring a boil. Then add meat concentrate and wait until it is fully integrated. Pour the cream and bring a boil. Blend until obtaining a fine sauce (can pass it through a sieve if necessary so that it is smooth and creamy).

Serve the meat with our fitting and sauce very hot.
