I am a little loathe to start writing any long blog posts right now as the switch to WordPress is imminent and I am paranoid of losing half-written posts but fear not, as soon as we’re up and running on WordPress, there are many more tales of Brittany to come!!
In the meantime, I thought I would leave you with a few images of a dish I created on a whim to enter in Food 52′s “best mashed potato recipe” contest this week. Remember the tartiflette I made a few weeks ago? All that creamy, cheesy goodness??? Well I had the idea to create a tartiflette brûlée where the potato would be mashed with the cream, onion and bacon and baked in a small ramekin dish covered in cheese that would melt and crisp up, not unlike a proper crème brûlée… Result?
Looks good, huh? You can find the recipe here and I would definitely check it out if you are a fan of potato gratin dishes. The crunchy cheese top gives way to fluffy, creamy potatoes studded with bacon (or in my case, home-cured pancetta). So. Good. And I prepared it in less than 30 minutes this evening! Couldn’t ask for more!
In other recipe news, I submitted my red roast pork with pomegranate glaze recipe to the Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook Competition. Check out the entry here.
