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.
