Serves: 6


  • 4 large potatoes, cut in wedges
  • 5 cups vegetable oil, or as needed
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground black pepper


  • Boil the potatoes for about 15 minutes on medium-low heat, until they can be pierced with a fork but are not too soft. Drain thoroughly, and cut lengthwise into pieces approximately 3⁄4 inch thick.
  • Add the oil to the fondue pot, making sure it is not more than half full. Heat the pot on a stove element over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, move the fondue pot to the table and set up the burner. Keep the heat high.
  • Using a dipping fork, dip the potato slices briefly into the oil. Drain on paper towels or a tempura rack. Season with black pepper.
