French Fridays: Potato, feta and basil tortilla from My Paris Kitchen

Potato, feta and basil tortilla from My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Cook the Book Fridays recipe from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen was a simple tortilla – a thick Spanish omelette/ frittata, typically served at room temperature.

This was an easy one I made when I was in Australia last month for a quick dinner, accompanied with a salad, because I thought it would be the perfect recipe to christen my new enamel baking dish which is oven, stovetop and dishwasher safe. Perfect for this recipe! We added some spicy Spanish chorizo to this and it was perfect. So easy to make (with so many possibilities for fillings) and good warm or room temperature (or even slightly warmed up the next day, it makes a great breakfast!).

Get the recipe for David Lebovitz’s Potato, feta, and basil tortilla on p 148 of My Paris Kitchen.

    That looks good Mardi, and I love the baking dish, very pretty too.

    Nice baking dish! Yours looks more eggy than mine. Maybe Australian eggs are bigger? I forgot to tell you last week that your post inspired me to make Dorie’s brown butter peach tourte. Really great!

      I’m not sure why the eggs are more yellow but you’re right – they really are!

    I wondered where you were, Ms. Mardi. It’s not like you to not get your Post up early on Friday. Glad to know everything is okay. This was an easy one and I liked it. Tasted delicious. Now, I need to know. Did you take an enamel baking dish to Australia or did you buy it there to take home to Canada or France. Or, did you move and I am just not knowing that? Love your sketch at the upper right hand side of your blog. Looks just like a picture I saw of your cute little house.

      Hi Mary! My post was up early on Friday and I saw everyone’s posts because I subscribe to their blogs – just forgot to link out to mine on the CtBF site! I bought the enamel dish to bring home to Canada. And yes, the sketch is based on a photo!

    Lovely new cooking vessel! Looking good, that tortilla of yours! I am gonna try with Chinese lap cheong next time I make it again!

      Isn’t it? I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it!

    I always love your photos, but there’s something about the blue dish and the checked background that really make everything pop even more! Just gorgeous! Such a tasty dish and a relatively easy one to put together. I definitely want to try it with chorizo, but didn’t have any in the house the day I decided to make the tortilla! I enjoyed seeing all your adventures this summer–that flight to Australia is soooooooo long!

    What a lovely picture of the dish: the glorious food, the enamel baking dish and the setting! You’ve nailed it.

      Thanks so much – it’s easy to make food look pretty with bright colours!
