This Friday’s French Fridays with Dorie will be short and sweet. Broth Braised potatoes (page 358) is what I generally do when I boil new potatoes anyway – instead of using plain water, these potatoes are boiled in a broth, enhanced with garlic, lemon zest, bay leaves, rosemary, sage and thyme. A couple of simple additions to an already simple dish that elevate from the ranks of “boring vegetables” to something a little more interesting.
That being said, these potatoes were just ok. Nothing really special. They didn’t really take on much of the flavour of the broth which was a shame. That said, the flavour of the broth itself was fabulous and next time, I might replace the broth with butter and fry them up in all those great flavours to make some tasty home fries

French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, rather, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves (trust me, you definitely want this book!) which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself and join us this year!
