  • 1 kg Potatoes
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp flour
  • salt to serve


  • Put a roasting tin in the oven and heat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • Peel 1kg potatoes and cut each into 4 even-sized pieces if they are medium size, 2-3 if smaller (5cm per pieces).
  • Drop the potatoes into a large pan and pour in enough water to barely cover them.
  • Add salt, then wait for the water to boil. As soon as the water reaches a full rolling boil, lower the heat, put your timer on and simmer the potatoes uncovered, reasonably vigorously, for 2 mins.
  • Meanwhile, put olive oil into the hot roasting tin and heat it in the oven for a few mins, so it’s really hot.
  • Drain the potatoes.
  • Sprinkle with flour and give another shake or two so they are evenly and thinly coated.
  • Carefully put the potatoes into the hot fat – they will sizzle as they go in – then turn and roll them around so they are coated all over.
  • Spread them in a single layer making sure they have plenty of room.
  • Roast the potatoes for 15 mins, then take them out of the oven and turn them over.
  • Roast for another 15 mins and turn them over again.
  • Put them back in the oven for another 10-20 mins, or however long it takes to get them really golden and crisp. 
  • The colouring will be uneven, which is what you want.
  • Scatter with Maldon salt and serve straight away.
