The right potato, good rock salt and hot oil, that's all that's needed to make your very own perfect roasted potatoes every time and today served with maple glazed roasted parsnips.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 10 mins
  • Yields: 1 Feast


2 1/2 Kg Roasting potatoes

1 Scattering Sea salt

1 Large Lug of Olive oil

10 Medium Parsnips

1 Scattering Freshly milled black pepper

1 tbsp Maple syrup


Bring a large pan of water to a boil with your peeled and radomly cut potatoes, boil for about 8 minutes until just soft yet firm, drain and leave to cool.

Heat a large roasting tray of oil/fat in a hot oven 200c.

Rough up your potatoes so they are slightly floury on the outside and season with coarse sea salt, add to the tray along with seasoned & coated parsnips, giving them both a good toss in the hot oil, roast for 1 hour, giving them a gentle turn every now and then until crispy and golden.

Remove and drain from the oil, pile onto a warmed serving platter.
