Adored as a versatile, delicious cooking fat, goose fat also makes the world’s best roast potatoes.


  • 3 large Yukon Gold potatoes , about 300 g, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 200-g jar goose fat
  • 4 garlic cloves , peeled
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • PREHEAT oven to 425F.
  • BOIL potatoes in a medium pot until tender, 10-12 min. Drain well.
  • POUR goose fat, garlic cloves and rosemary in an 8×8 baking dish. Bake in centre of oven until hot, 10 min. Add potatoes to hot fat in a single layer, being careful not to splash the oil.
  • BAKE in centre of oven, turning every 20 min, until golden and crispy, about 1 hour.
  • REMOVE potatoes from oil, draining on paper towel if desired, and sprinkle with salt.
