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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
