Very tasty and impressive for a dinner party. Can leave them in the oven for a bit longer if the rest of your dinner isn't quite ready and they are still good. Am now on my third time of using this recipe and just love it!

Really really delicious! The capers and olives went all crispy too. One of the best roast potato recipes I've tried. Kids loved it too.

These are really tasty and a nice alternative, we usually have wesges with everything! I halved the amount of potatoes and vinigar and only used 2tbsp of oil and still worked out lovly and crispy, might try again with just 1tbsp of oil as I dont usually cook with a lot but still wanted the crispyness - now added to the weeks menu

Really lovely with roast summer vegetables and salad for a vegan meal when a friend came to stay. Cooking it tonight with chicken and salad for meat eating friends. Also, makes a great potato salad the next day or is great in an omelette or with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon so make extra whilst you can.

I served this dish alongside Boursin chicken to visitors to our guest house and they thought it was wonderful! So easy to do and looks and tastes great.

A lovely change from steamed new potatoes and much tastier than the picture suggests. I couldn't get capers so left them out but the tin of black olives I used made up for them I am sure. Super recipe.

I failed to follow the instructions properly but I ended up with amazing roast potatoes :D (I didn't put capers in as I don't like them!)

Wonderful - really crisp potatoes and the flavour of the olives with them was delicious. Left out the capers as didn't have any - still wonderful flavour without them

Absolutely delicious, packed full of flavour with the olives and capers, be generous with the vinegar for extra taste and keep in the oven for longer for an extra crisp top. Perfect with roast sausages and salad.
