  1. Preheat the oven to 230 ºC (450 ºF).
  2. Place a large pot filled with plenty of salted water over high heat. Once boiling, add the potatoes and cook for 7 - 8 minutes, until starting to soften at the edges but still holding their shape. Drain and set aside to dry for 5 minutes, then transfer to a large bowl. Add the sunflower oil along with 1 tablespoon salt and mix well.
  3. Tip the potatoes and sunflower oil onto two large parchment-lined baking sheets (so that they are not overcrowded) and bake for 40 - 50 minutes, stirring a few times, until golden brown and crisp
  4. About 5 minutes before the fries are ready, heat the olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry gently for 3 - 4 minutes, until the garlic is pale golden brown. Take the cooked fries out of the oven and pour the olive oil and garlic over them. then return to the oven for a further 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and, while piping hot, sprinkle with the oregano and feta. Serve at once.
