“Boiling the potatoes at 90°C will bloom the starch, which means they will stay nice and fluffy on the inside when baked. The AEG SensePro induction cooktop is great for this as you can use the AEG Wireless Food Sensor to monitor the water temperature, ensuring you hit 90°C. I love adding apple cider vinegar to the potatoes when boiling, as it gives a hint of tangy salt and vinegar flavour,” says Mark.

4 large Sebago potatoes

1 dessert spoon flaked sea salt
