How do you cook potato wedges like restaurants?

Question by 1jenbo: How do you cook potato wedges like restaurants?
I love the homemade (real) fresh cut potato wedges like I have found at some convenience store restaurants. I see them before they go into the hot oil. They look like they have flour on them. I can not figure out if they have been blanched 1st and then coated or how they are cooked perfectly. These are not the kind you find bagged and in your grocery store freezer. Please advice how to get these wonderful potatoes.
