Baked Potatoes with a twist

This recipe was sent to my by a friend in France. I am not sure where he got it from so if you know please let me know (he has no idea where he got it from either but it was among his recipe collection!) These potatoes are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside!
(serves 4-6 )

60g (1/4 cup) butter, melted
1kg (2 pounds) baking potatoes. wash well but do not peel
80g (2/3 cup) flour
60g (2 ounces) parmesan cheese, grated. Or try Pecorino
1 1/2 tsp celery salt
1 tbs paprika

1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground red pepper(or cayenne pepper)
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). 
Grease a baking sheet  with the melted butter, and put in the oven to preheat.
Mix the flour, cheese, and seasonings in a large plastic bag.
Cut the potatoes lengthwise in wedges, 4 or 6 wedges per potato as evenly as possible. Do not rinse. the starch needs to be there!
Add the potatoes to the bag, close the bag , and shake well to coat the potatoes on all sides.
Place the potatoes, flesh side down, on the preheated baking sheet. 
Bake for 30 minutes, turn the potatoes, and bake for another 30 minutes, until cooked and are dark golden in colour. 
Sprinkle with a some sea salt and serve.
