But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all x

I thought I’d share this very special way of getting the ultimate crispy roast potatoes, just in time for Xmas. Prepare to drool..


You'll Need

  • 1 kg desiree or good roasting potatoes
  • 2 tbs semolina
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • truffle salt (available from gourmet food stores)


Pre heat oven to 200C.

Peel the potatoes, cut them in half and then half again. Place them in a large saucepan and cover with cold water.

Bring the potatoes to the boil and then drain them in a sieve. Add them back to the saucepan, sprinkle with semolina and bash them around the pot to rough up the edges a little.
Pour the oil into a large heavy based roasting pan and allow the oil to heat up for 10 minutes or so. (NOTE: I know this seems like a lot of oil, but it is crucial – trust me)
Carefully place the potatoes in the hot oil and roast for 20-30 minutes, turning them over half way through. Cook until golden brown. Drain the potatoes quickly on paper towel and sprinkle with truffle salt and serve.


  1. These look delicious! I have been doing my roast potatoes in duck fat but will definately try these. I'm wondering – if I can't find the truffle salt whether to add a tablespoon of truffle oil (which I have) to the olive for the flavour and then just sea salt it?
    Have a wonderful Christmas, I look forward to more delish blogs in the New Year.
