Perfect roast potatoes to compliment a sunday roast.


  • Maris piper potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • Duck fat
  • Sea salt & white pepper
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • 2 garlic cloves, bashed but unpeeled
  • Splash of red wine vinegar
  • Fragment of star anise (about a quarter)


  • STEP 1
    Boil the potatoes in salted water until nearly falling apart. Drain and allow to steam-dry for a couple of minutes while you pre-heat the duck fat in a 200C oven.
  • STEP 2
    Shake the potatoes as much as you dare to chuff up the sides, then tip into the smoking fat.
  • STEP 3
    After 25 minutes, gently squash the potatoes with a masher to open up the sides a little. Chuck in the rosemary, garlic, vinegar and star anise and a generous helping of salt and white pepper.
  • STEP 4
    Continue roasting until browned to your liking (about another 25 minutes).
