  • 800 g potatoes choose a variety that is suitable for fries
  • 6 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper


  • Peel the potatoes and cut them lengthwise into wedges of desired size.
  • The secret to make your potato wedges EXTRA crips, is to soak them in ice-cold water for at least 1 hour. You can however skip this step if you don't have time.
  • If you soaked the potatoes in water, it is very important to dry them thoroughly.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Take out 2baking sheets and line them with parchment paper.
  • Put the potatoes in a large bowl and add the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Dispose them in rows on the baking sheets.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 200°C. Then, flip the potatoes and bake for another 15 minutes or until golden brown (it depends on the potato variety).
  • Finally, put the oven on "grill" mode for a few more minutes. Watch carefully to make sure the potatoes don’t burn.
