Maris Piper is the traditional chip favourite and with its creamy white flesh and fluffy texture, you can guarantee a tasty crunch on the outside whilst remaining light and fluffy in the middle. As a simple go-to recipe, we’d recommend our tried-and-tested chunky triple cooked chips.
The best potatoes for fries
The ideal fries are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, so like chunky chips, Maris Piper is the recommended choice to ensure a consistent cook throughout.
The best potatoes for wedges
Much like jackets potatoes, look for good, large all-rounders such as Marfona, Saxon and Nectar.
