This week’s dish is perhaps one of the most popular in French cuisine: le gratin dauphinois
The name gratin dauphinois refers to the Dauphin, region of France, where it originates from.
Although our recipe follows the traditional method of preparation, you can find in France many alternative recipes to this one. Gratin savoyard, for exemple, is a variation found in the neighboring region. Unlike gratin dauphinois, it is made without milk or cream. Instead, it consists of alternating layers of sliced potatoes and Beaufort cheese with butter, and broth is poured over the top before baking
