    Tips for making:

    How to make gravy


    • 2.5kg potatoes, such as Maris Piper
    • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1½ tsp ground turmeric
    • pinch of chilli flakes, to taste
    • 4–5 tbsp olive oil (or goose or duck fat)


    • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Peel the potatoes, quarter lengthways and place in a large saucepan of salted cold water. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 8 minutes.

    • Drain the potatoes in a colander and sprinkle with the turmeric, chilli flakes and some salt and pepper. Toss in the colander to coat evenly, then drizzle with a little of the olive oil and toss again. Leave to steam for 5 minutes.

    • Put the rest of the olive oil in a roasting tray and place in the oven for a few minutes to heat up. Carefully add the potatoes and toss to coat in the oil. Roast for 40–45 minutes, turning a few times, until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper and transfer to a warmed dish to serve.
