Not a lot of people know that Michael Caine makes world's best roast potatoes; ..SO SAYS FOOD CRITIC WINNER.


MOVIE star Michael Caine claims to have the recipe for the world's best roast potatoes.

The legendary actor will serve up the spuds when he cooks Christmas dinner for his family and friends at his home in Florida on Friday.

Sir Michael, 76, says his recipe is so good it earned the "world's best" tag from his pal, food critic and star of the "Calm down, dear" esure insurance ads, Michael Winner. Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs today, he says: "I grew up during the war when there was no Christmas, so I over-produce Christmas like Sam Goldwyn. The whole place is full of decorations."


"PRE-cook the potatoes and put them in cold fat so it soaks in. You've got to boil them first. Get them absolutely dry - let them steam and go dry, then put the lid back on. Shake them so they go all fluffy, then put them in cold olive oil with rosemary and sage in it."


Winner says pal Caine is a potato wizard
