The Gratin Dauphinois

There is often a debate in France about the gratin dauphinois. Yes, we have serious issues here from time to time! But I’m not afraid, I can face the fearless, I can face those who will disagree with my recipe, though it is the original one. And you wanna know why? Just because this gratin dauphinois is soooo good, that everybody will just shut up and enjoy!

And the most amazing point here (get ready to read something unbelievable), the recipe only requires 2 ingredients!!! Plus seasoning. That’s all. End of discussion.

The gratin dauphinois is made with potatoes and cream! And if you want to add butter in your plate, why not but the cream will bring enough fat. You want to add milk. Okay, I won’t argue… You want to add garlic, well now you’re starting to play with my nerves, but I respect… Your cooking, your decision… But if you add grated cheese, I shall give my apron back. Enough is enough!

Let’s say it again: potatoes and cream!! Potatoes and cream!!

Well, we shouldn’t get mad… the recipe, Chef!

    bonjour !!

    Je vous suis régulièrement sur Facebook, notamment avec votre recette de gâteau au chocolat meringué ! Miam !
    J’ai quelques questions : vous mettez de la crème liquide ou épaisse ??
    sinon je pensais le faire en début d’après-midi pour le soir, pensez vous que je puisse le laisser dans le four (éteint ) et après le réchauffer doucement ou faut il que je le mette au frigo et le réchauffer ensuite ?
    Merci beaucoup et bravo pour votre talent !!!!!!

      Merci beaucoup Emilie ! Alors je mets de la crème liquide. Vous pouvez le garder au four éteint, et le réchauffer tranquillement avec un papier alu pour éviter le dessèchement. 😉
