The Perfect Roast Potato

13th December, 2021

With Christmas just around the corner, we thought we’d share our top tips for the ultimate roast potatoes from our Head Chef, Richard.

So, it all starts with a cracking potato – we use Maris Piper or King Edwards from Mummeries, our village green grocer.

  1. Peel and cut each potato at an angle and parboil until you can just get a knife into them.
  2. Then, give them a seriously good shake in the colander once drained so they go all fluffy!
  3. Pop them on a clean tea towel, spread them out and leave for a few hours (longer the better!)
  4. When you’re ready to cook, get your oil super hot in the roasting pan – it should sizzle when your rosties go in!
  5. Give them a toss so they’re coated on all sides, add plenty of salt and pop in a 200 degree oven for about half an hour
  6. Give them a turn and cook for a further 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, we love to finely chop some fresh garlic and rosemary and add to the now crispy roasties 10 minutes before they’re finished to give a delicious boost of flavour!

Enjoy! X
