What are Potato Wedges?

​​Potato wedges are thick sliced potatoes, unlike French Fries, which are thinly cut batons of potatoes. They are called wedges because of the shape in which they are cut. They are brown and crispy from the outside, while the insides remain nice and fluffy. Potato wedges are generally served as an accompaniment with fried fish or chicken and form a classic dish called fish and chips.

      Expert Tips

      1) Make sure you prick the potatoes all over or they might burst through the heat pressure.

      2) The longer you chill them, the better texture you get inside.

      3) The salt in the end is necessary, as the salt over fried food absorbs the excess moisture.
