Give these a go and see why professional chefs love to make fondant potatoes so much!

  1. Slice the ends off the potatoes so that they lay flat. Cut around the edges so that each potato is the same shape and size. You can use a biscuit cutter to do this.
  2. Heat the oil and a cube of butter in a large pan over a medium-high heat.
  3. Add the potatoes flat side down and fry for about 5 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Flip over and fry on the other side.
  4. Turn the heat down to a low-medium. Add the butter.
  5. Scatter the garlic and herbs around the potatoes and season well.
  6. Carefully pour the chicken stock into the pan being careful the hot butter doesn't splash up.
  7. Cover the pan with tin foil and gently simmer for about 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender, every so often just check the potatoes aren't sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

As a youngster, I hit rock bottom and landed myself in a young offenders. I managed to turn my life around, became the first person to earn a Gold D of E Award behind bars and through this found my passion in cooking. I was taken on by Jamie Oliver, eventually started my own business and now find myself catering for royals and celebs. I use my love for food to spread joy and help others find purpose and change their lives. I mentor youngsters who have been in trouble with the law and regularly go back into prisons to share my experiences. I find myself being in a very fortunate position where I am able to do something I really love AND get paid for it!
