Slice up the potatoes, no need to peel, and put on a baking sheet. Drizzle over a little oil, you won’t need much, just a tsp, or possibly two. Bake in a hot oven for about half an hour, or until the wedges are cooked through and golden. You could shorten the oven step by softening them in the microwave for 5 minutes first.
Once the wedges are cooked through, get arty with your ingredients. Arrange them a la gastro pub on a slate (I’ve used one of my slate table mats) a wooden platter, on little dishes etc. it tastes nicer that way you know
Many things can be used in a meal like this. Some nice bread, a toasted pitta or nan, cut into slices, a few bread sticks, a little dish of any flavour hoummous, some sliced peppers from a jar, some sun blush tomatoes, a couple of taste bomb tomatoes, an artichoke heart or two, a few slices of any cold meat (salami, pepperoni, that kind of thing). You could add a few carrot batons, some warm broad beans if you have any in the garden would be lovely, a whole roasted beetroot, some caramelised onions. The world is your oyster really.
