What's the difference between confit and fondant potato?

by Ian Newson   Last Updated May 27, 2018 20:17 PM

So they both seem to always require relatively long cooking in some kind of liquid containing fat. The only difference I seem to be able to find is the shaping of the potato and colouring of it by frying of the fondant potato.

Is this correct? Is this the only difference?

I'd also like it if someone can provide a generic definition of both!
