Foods a picky girl likes


With just a splash of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper, you can turn the humble potato into delicious home-made wedges. They’re perfect with anything from a home-made burger to your favourite grilled chicken. Give them a try and you won’t ever buy the frozen ones again.

  • • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • • 500g baking potatoes
  • • olive oil

• Preheat your oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6
• Put a large pan of salted water on to boil
• Scrub the potatoes clean and get rid of any gnarly bits

• Add to the pan of boiling water and parboil for 8 minutes
• Drain in a colander and leave to steam dry for a couple of minutes

• Transfer to a roasting tray and add a good lug of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper
• Toss together so all the wedges are coated in the oil then spread out in one layer
• Cook in the hot oven for 15 minutes until golden, crisp and cooked through

• Delicious served with steak or chicken
• Once you’ve made these, why not try sprinkling with a little smoked paprika for a nice, spicy twist
