This method of cooking potatoes gives you a very crisp skin and fluffy inside. The secret is to cook the potatoes for a long time in a low heat oven.


  1. Clean potatoes well.
  2. Prick potatoes all over with a fork.
  3. Roll potatoes in olive oil.
  4. Roll potatoes in salt. Careful - not too much salt!
  5. Place potatoes directly onto oven rack.
  6. Roast for 2 hours in a 180 degrees celcius oven.
  7. Serve with ratatouille or any other topping of your choice.
