Perfect Goose Fat Roast Potatoes and Parsnips
Perfect Goose Fat Roast Potatoes and Parsnips



  • 1.5kg quality white potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 600g parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 100g goose or duck fat
  • Handful of rosemary
  • Place the potatoes into a pan of cold salted water, and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 3 mins, then add the parsnips and simmer for another 3 mins. Drain, and leave to cool. Separate the potatoes and parsnips.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Place a large roasting tin with the goose fat inside, and allow to come to sizzling temperature. Pour the potatoes into the tin, and toss them to coat in the hot fat. Put the tin back in the oven, and leave them - undisturbed - for 1 hour. Add the parsnips, and turn everything together.
  • Increase the heat to 220C, and roast everything for 20 mins more. Sprinkle in the rosemary, turn everything again to baste, and roast for another 15 mins. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, and serve as the ultimate festive side dish!
