There are those who like to drown their roasts in gravy, and those who like to keep it sequestered to their mashed potatoes. And if you find yourself in that latter group, Vihart has put together a fantastic tutorial on how you can maximise your gravy coverage with the optimal potato arrangement.

Not surprisingly, your best bet is to keep your plate free of other tasty distractions that could minimise its capacity for gravy. A daunting suggestion, but you can always load up on all the trimmings for your next helping. It's all for the greater good. [YouTube]
