Dauphinoise; pommes gratin
Very thinly-sliced potatoes baked with garlic, milk and cream. Waxy-type potatoes must be used or the potatoes disintegrate.
The dish comes from the Dauphine region of northern Provence, and authentic versions shouldn't include the often-found eggs, cheese or nutmeg. For a recipe see our Gourmet Britain Recipe section.
