Chef's top tips

For this recipe I like to use French Cabrettes potatoes, or varieties rich in selenium, I leave the jackets on because I like the aftertaste that reminds me of roast chestnuts.

If you prefer, you can add a clove of unpeeled garlic, and if you don't have any thyme, rosemary will do fine.

If you want even tastier roast potatoes, I recommend adding some breadcrumbs 5 minutes before removing them from the oven, taking care not to burn the bread.
