    Go Dorie and go you. I bet braising that meat just makes this all the better. Have fun at the Jamie Oliver event – sounds like fun!!

    • Yes it’s amazing how such a simple process – braising – really makes the meat so much more delicious!

    Wish I would of had some of this around the house this week, looks like the perfect comfort food to enjoy on cold and rainy days. Way to channel your inner Dori!

    Bee-ooo-tiii-fullll! This must be the prettiest hachis parmentier I’ve ever seen :-) I actually do an Indian vegetarian version with soy crumbles and spices and often use sweet potatoes instead of regular ones…Monsieur Parmentier would probably be scandalized, but I think it’s pretty good! Bravo for yours and the beautiful photos!

    Stunning. Almost as good as mine. 😉

    Looking forward to a lamb or venison version in future.

    Yours looks gorgeous Mardi! I agree, this recipe packs in a lot of flavour for such a simple and rustic dish.

    Fabulous pictures!!

  10. This looks so good! Like a much more flavorful version of shepard’s pie. I really want this cookbook!

    I see that you have channelled your inner Dorie in this wonderful looking hachis parmentier!

    The potato topping looks fantastic! I just attended a class taught by Dorie on Wednesday. She mentioned French Fridays with Dorie, and I hadn’t heard about it before. Her new book looks so great!

    Love that you were able to plate your hachis permentier! So pretty!

  15. That is quite possibly the most beautiful plating of Hachis Permentier ever! It looks absolutely delicious… very nicely executed. ~m.

    • Thanks – all it was was a pint glass that I cut into the hachis with to make a little individual round..

    Looks yummy Mardi, but you haven’t tasted my latest version. made with lamb mince, and the potato has grated parmesan and an egg yolk.
    The egg fuffs the potato up like a souffle. Your presentation, however is, as usual, stunning.

    When I was cooking in London one of the chefs always used to make this for me – its my ultimate comfort food with a little bit of french tizz to it, love the Hachis Parmentier too.

    Looks like an awesome recipe. I think I might have to check out this book….

    Mmmm, looks so good! Nice and warm and hearty for Fall. I keep meaning to join French Fridays with Dorie — it looks like so much fun!

    There have been so many TERRIBLE shepherd’s pies made in the history of shepherd’s pies – I’m sure we can all think back to a bland, fatty version at a cafeteria or from a frozen packet – so it’s quite refreshing to see it done so well and looking so nice!

    I think the idea of trying a lamb or venison version is very important 😀

  21. Definitely agree this recipe is a keeper. I made my last Sunday for dinner but the photos came out awful so decided not to post it. Even the French hubby who has memories of his grandmother’s Hachis said this was a good one.

  22. I must have been channeling the energy of Dorie’s cooking club this week, because I had just made a very similar pie. This is the perfect comfort food recipe for the colder weather.

    Your hachis parmentier looks gorgeous! This was my first time cooking with sausage meat and loved the flavour it added.

  24. That is a lovely dish… Looks perfect for a cold winter night.

    I found your post on hachis Parmentier while researching the dish. I also prepared Dorie Greenspan’s recipe and loved it. We recently purchased her cookbook and are cooking our way through it–on Monday nights. We write about our food and wine experiences on our blog http://pullthatcork.com.

    Hi there, We just discovered this delicious dish on pinterest and are wanting to make it for my daughters 13th birthday party (French Theme) but there is really no recipe to follow with ingredients and measurements etc. I know this is an old post but is there any possibility of getting the recipe. Thanks Donna
