This recipe for roasted potatoes comes from chef Anne Willan.
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place potatoes and salt in a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain. Score potatoes all over with the tines of a fork.
Combine cooked potatoes and drippings in a roasting pan large enough to allow the potatoes to roast in a single layer. Transfer to oven, and roast until crispy and golden brown, about 1 hour.
