Bite-sized crispy roast potatoes and a chilled fromage frais dip. No one will need an invitation to dive in.


  • 1.5kg (3lb 2oz) King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp coriander pesto
  • 150ml (1/4pt) fromage frais


  • To start preheat the oven to 200°C/400°/gas 6. Pour the olive oil into a large roasting tin and place it in the oven to heat up.

  • Next cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks and bring them to boil in large pan. Simmer for 7 minutes.

  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the pan. With the lid on the pan shake the potatoes to roughen the edges, this will give them a lovely crispy coating.

  • Next add the coriander pesto and toss until evenly covered.

  • Carefully add the potatoes to the hot roasting tin and spoon over the pesto sauce. Return the tin of potatoes to the oven for 45-50 mins, turning once or twice during cooking, until crispy.
