    Heston's Roast Potatoes with Garlic and Rosemary

    Recipe from Heston's happy Christmas - The great chef is sticking with tradition this year with spectacular turkey and tremendous trimmings all round - it’s the ultimate family feast.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 100 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 55 minutes 60 minutes 55 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 1.25kg large maris piper potatoes, peeled
    • 150ml olive oil
    • 8 garlic cloves, bashed with the flat side of a knife
    • 15g rosemary
    • 15g thyme


    1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.
    2. Cut the potatoes into quarters, put them into a bowl and place under running water for 5 minutes to wash off the starch.
    3. Cover the potatoes with water in a large saucepan, bring to the boil and cook until very soft; drain carefully and leave to cool in the colander.
    4. Pour the olive oil into a roasting tray large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer, then add the potatoes and garlic. Stir to coat and cook in the oven for about 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes.
    5. Add the rosemary and thyme to the pan and return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp all over. Drain on kitchen paper and season with salt.
