Recipe by James Barry

Sixteen plus years in the culinary field, James started as a private chef, having cooked for celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Mariska Hargitay, George Clooney, Gerard Butler, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Barbra Streisand, and John Cusack.

The trick to crispy potatoes is parboiling them in some water with baking soda. It's breaks down the starch, giving more surface area on the potato to crisp while leaving the inside soft and velvety.


Step 1

Preheat oven at 425º F.

Step 2

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise.

Step 3

In a 4-5 quart pot, add potatoes, baking soda, and salt. Add enough water to cover potatoes fully.


1-1/2 pounds red, white, russet, purple...your choice

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

excellent customer service and product

We use this on nearly every meal at our table. A couple of weeks ago we ran out, and my eggs and greens just didn’t taste the same. My popcorn didn’t have a kick in the flavor. My soup was just plain ole soup. Thank goodness we were able to get some right away and now we are back in business. Why not add some nutritional value and flavor to your meal? It’s delicious and easy to do!

eat pluck is amazing!!

I have never been happier that I have made this purchase. I know how important it is to get the benefits of consuming organs but it’s finding the time to find a good source to purchase them and learn how to cook them properly to be palatable. Eat Pluck made my life so much easier and the taste of this absolutely surprised me. It is so delicious!
