Castle & Cannon Fried Potatoes - A Touch of Class for any Plate!
Recipe type: Potatoes
Cuisine: Chef T Original
Today we’re going to do something really simple and quick that can add a touch of class to any dish. All you need for this recipe is a large potato per person, a potato peeler, a very sharp knife and an apple corer. In addition to this you will need a pan and oil to fry the potatoes.
  • 1 Large potato per person
  • Oil for frying
  1. To start, you will need a large potato for each guest. They should be roughly the same size as one another, and peeled.
  2. Slice a flat section off of the side of one of the potatoes.
  3. Turn the potato onto the flat section and proceed to slice flat sections from each side of the potato.
  4. Turn the potato onto one of the sides and slice off the remaining flat section.
  5. Slice the ends off to create a rectangular shaped block.
  6. Place the knife 5mm in from the edge of the potato and slice 5mm downwards.
  7. Re-position the knife parallel with the work surface and 5mm from the top edge of the potato and slice in wards 5mm. A small chip will come free from the potato, getting rid of the slightly curved corners at the top and bottom of the potato.
  8. Repeat this with all 12 edges of the potato.
  9. Use your apple corer to remove the center of the potato along its length.
  10. Continue until all of the potatoes are processed.
  11. Heat your oil to 180c and fry the potatoes until deep golden in color, and they start to float to the top of the oil.
  12. Remove the potatoes from the oil, drain any excess oil on kitchen paper, and serve immediately.

Serves: 12
We will be making a batch of delectable Syrian-style cheese latkes. These latkes are crispy on the outside, and incredibly smooth and creamy on the inside. Rich and decadent, these treats will have your friends and family lining up for seconds. You can whip up a dozen of these tasty latkes in under 20 minutes.
  • 1lb / 450g Strong cheese (mature Cheddar / Monterey Jack)
  • 1 Cup / 160g All purpose flour
  • ½ Cup / 110g Caster sugar
  • 6 Eggs
  • ¼ Tsp / 1.25ml Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp / 5ml Vanilla extract
  • Butter for frying
  1. Measure a cup or 160g of all-purpose flour into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add a pound or 450g of coarsely grated strong cheese. You can use mature cheddar, jack or anything similar.
  3. Mix this into the flour. Doing this does make the final mixing much easier, and you will get a more even mix as well.
  4. Add a half-cup, or 110g of caster sugar and a quarter teaspoon or 1.25ml of ground cinnamon. Mix this in until well combined.
  5. Add 6 eggs to the bowl and mix these in thoroughly until there is no dry flour visible in the mixture.
  6. Finally, add a teaspoon or 5ml of vanilla extract and mix this in thoroughly.
  7. Heat a large pan over medium high heat and add enough butter to cover the base of the pan.
  8. Spoon one-third of a cup, or 80ml of batter into the pan for each latke.
  9. Fry these for 2-3 minutes before turning. Don’t be too concerned about them breaking when you turn them, the fried side is quite resilient and will hold them together.
  10. Fry the second side until golden, then remove them from the pan and continue with the remaining latkes.
  11. Serve the latkes with whipped cream or ice-cream and a generous dose of honey or maple syrup, and you’re ready go.
