  • 6 large potatoes
  • 2 tbsp goose fat
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp rosemary chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  • Place 2 wooden spoons on a board and place a potato in-between the spoons.
  • Slice the potatoes into thin slices using the wooden spoons as a stopper so the potatoes stay in one piece once sliced. - The incisions should go about three-quarters of the way down.
  • Repeat until all the potatoes are prepared.
  • Place the potatoes in a roasting pan, drizzle with goose fat, season with salt nd pepper and sprinkle the rosemary.
  • Place in the oven and roast for about 40-45 minutes until cooked through, basting from time to time.
