Cooking roast potatoes with flour and goose fat?

I normally boil my potatoes then shake them up with two tablespoons of flour, then roast in hot olive oil, and they work really well (usually!).

I've bought some goose fat to roast then for Xmas and wondered whether I can use the same method (ie hear goose fat in oven before adding potatoes, and still use flour)? The only recipe I have for using goose fat suggests adding the fat to the pan of part-boiled potatoes when I shake them up.

Yes, but Nigella says roll them in semolina flour first instead of flour and thy are even more wonderful.

I've never used flour, just a mix of goose fat and golden rapeseed. When doing the turkey just pour a tad of turkey fat in too makes the roasties very tasty indeed.

Semolina here too - Y.U.M!

Mmmm, thanks for the suggestions. Will get done semolina ( or semolina flour).

So just to clarify, I can put the goose fat in the tray and heat it as normal, before adding the semolina-d potatoes?
