December 15th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 4-6


5 medium parsnips, peeled and sliced into thin strips (French fries)
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped fine
Maldon or flake salt


Pre heat oven to 425°F. Place the parsnips in a large mixing bowl and combine all other ingredients in the same bowl. Mix and toss well until all the parsnips are well coated with oil, adding extra oil if needed. Place on a line baking sheet, making sure the parsnips have enough space to cook evenly. Place in the oven and roast for about 15-20 minutes or until browned evenly. Make sure to turn and flip the parsnips at least once during the roasting process for even browning. Sprinkle a little flask on them as they come out of the oven if desired.

Serves 4


4 russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ¼ inch thick rounds
1-2 cups duck fat


Rinse the potato slices in cold water to remove the surface starch. Drain well and pat dry with cotton kitchen towels.

Heat ½ inch of duck fat in a wide sauté pan over medium heat until very hot but not smoking. Fry the potato slices in a single layer, in batches, until golden brown and crisp on each side. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with salt.
