Pommes Frites

Pommes Frites

Classic French fries. Once you eat handmade chips you will never go back to tipping them out of a plastic packet again. Serve this potato dish with anything — these are rockstar chips.


  • 800 g desirée potatoes, peeled, cut into wedges
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Sea salt, to season


Place a large, heavy frying pan over high heat. Pour in the oil and heat until bubbling slightly. To test if the oil is hot enough, drop in a small cube of bread; if it sizzles then the oil is ready. Add the potato wedges in 2 to 3 batches until golden brown and cooked through. This will take about 5 minutes.

Adding all the potato wedges at once will lower the temperature of the oil, making the potatoes oily. Remove the potato wedges to a plate covered with kitchen paper, set aside and keep warm. Season to taste.
