Food Wishes do you have any suggestions for good things to do with the trimmings? (I’d like to make this, but the wastage seems a bit excessive for the current coronavirus isolation.)

Food Wishes what's with your throw away anti American comment at the beginning, about us not doing recipes w more than 1 step. I bet most of your audience is proudly American. If you're anti America or self loathing, let us know. You make great videos about great food but we don't need to subscribe people who espouse "America was never that great" or similar snowflake nonsense.

Cut them in half when you start and they would be better. The crisp to not crisp ratio is way off!

Does the center part of the potato still have that buttery meltedness feeling? I usually make twice baked potato but was thinking of trying this out one day.

Do not forget to deep fry the washed and dried peels! The best chips/crisp making method imo. Don't waste them!

Chef Jon this Fondant film was my introduction to your culinary delights. As a 45yr old English Average Joe! and fan of la fam de le gavroche. Your work is equally mouth-waveringly wonderful and I have learnt so much from you. This Upload brings back Fondant memories! 😜

Is anyone here able to explain to me why this video has more than 2000 dislikes? It seems rather excessive, even if it is 7 years old.

I've cooked a bunch of Chef Jon recipes but this one... kinda sucks. I don't think it's jons fault, but there just isn't a lot of flavor, just giant blocks of starchy potatoes. It's like halfway between a worse version of a baked potato and a worse version of steak fries. Sorry Jon, this one feels like a miss to me.

Yeah Chef John: I know you don’t know me from a hole in the ground....but I wanted to at least thank you for reaching out to us... I made your fondant potatoes.... wow were they good....there is nothing more satiating than the potatoe....especially fried in thyme, butter and baked in chicken stock. I’ve just recently re-united with my daughter and her bow. They invited me over for supper. Guess what I brought. I was the hit of the party.

There is the danger that you could burn the butter after you boiled out the remaining stock. I would do that only if I had removed the milk fats before.

Delicious! (By the way, fondant is a French word meaning “melting”. It is the past participle of the verb fondre, to melt.) All of your videos are delightful.

I’m sorry but which devil decided that frying roast potatoes was acceptable They’re called roast for a reason, you gotta par-boil then roast them

I really don’t know why so many people are freaked out about oil temperatures. I think theyre taught this stuff in school. I cook with butter and olive oil at high heat all the time. Never once have I had a problem. Perhaps it smokes a little more, big deal. And the taste is way better. It’s not an issue unless you’re deep frying. Or just cooking the butter alone at some super high heat you can’t achieve on a home stove as long as you have something in the pan.

Oh yeah! I have been trying to figure out what recipe goes with these potatoes I had at a dinner party once. The host has dinner parties all the time and could not remember which potatoes I was talking about so every recipe he sent was the wrong one! Now I am in business!!
