Gratin dauphinois

Category: Food

The dauphinois is a rich gratin of sliced potatoes and cream. It looks like a difficlut dish to accomplish and it appears that getting the flavours and texture right can be quite tricky.

Come Jaime 30 minutes meal to the rescue – he makes such a complicated looking dish looks easy and rather simple to make!

This is a really yummy dish. It is very rich too, and I reckon not something to be made everyday.
