And, once again, many thanks to our event sponsors: Silpat for a handy silicone mat; Le Creuset for a lovely serving platter; and Melissa's Produce for providing the bloggers with a beautiful box of goodies, including the acorn squash and peeled, steamed chestnuts I used here.

The Creations



Potatoes Gratiné is known by various names including "gratin potatoes" and "gratin de pommes de terre." But they are all the same thing: thin slices of potato are placed in a buttered dish and browned in the oven or under the grill. 


This version used Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes from Melissa's Produce*, breadcrumbs, parmesan, and fresh thyme. It was a comforting seasonal dish that will be on our dinner table throughout autumn and winter.

Ingredients makes 4 servings
  • 3/4 lbs potatoes
  • 1-1/2 C organic heavy cream
  • 1-1/2 C vegetable or chicken stock
  • pinch salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 C grated parmesan
  • 1/4 C panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 C chopped raw hazelnuts
  • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 T butter

Procedure

Thinly slice potatoes with a knife or a mandolin.


Layer the potatoes and parmesan in an oven proof dish or ramekins. Take the leaves off one spring of thyme and sprinkle it over the top of the potatoes. 


Divide stock evenly between the ramekins. Divide the cream evenly between the ramekins, pouring carefully over the potatoes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


To make the topping, melt butter and add the breadcrumbs, hazelnut, and remaining whole sprigs of thyme. Cook until nicely toasted. Remove the thyme and spoon the topping into the ramekins.

Cover the dishes with foil - or a lid if they have one - and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the foil or cover, return to the oven and back for 10 to 12 more minutes until everything is nicely browned and the sauce bubbling. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
