  • floury potatoes 1.5kg
  • rosemary 8 sprigs
  • duck fat 120ml, at room temperature
  • garlic 2 cloves, crushed
  • sea salt


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put a potato on the chopping board with a wooden spoon running along its base closest to you.

  • Step 2

    Slice the potato every 3mm, using the wooden spoon’s handle to ensure you don’t cut all the way through the potato.

  • Step 3

    Repeat with all of the potatoes. Remove the leaves from 4 sprigs of rosemary and push between a few slices of each potato and add the rest to a roasting tin.

  • Step 4

    Mix the duck fat and garlic in a small bowl and pour over the potatoes, ensuring the fat gets between the layers.

  • Step 5

    Roast for 15 minutes, then remove and baste each potato, separating the layers with a knife to ensure fat gets between each slice.

  • Step 6

    Return to the oven and repeat twice more, adding the rest of the rosemary for the last 15 minutes of cooking. Season well with sea salt before serving.
