Bonjours mes amis! I know this is The English Kitchen, but it's Friday and that means it's French Fridays with Dorie day! That fun cooking club created around the release of Dorie Greenspan's newest book, entitled Around My French Table. Each Friday we all cook the same recipe from the book!
This week's recipe was Hachis Parmentier, a delicious cottage pie type of main course! I knew that Todd would love this dish right from the outset. It just plucked the strings of his meat and potatoes loving heart in all the right places!!
This recipe differs from most cottage pie recipes in that it uses a mixture of boiled beef and ground sausage meat in the filling. Quelle idée fantastique !
You could also choose to fast track the recipe and use minced beef, which I did, along with a good quality spicy banger from my local butcher's shop. I also cut the recipe down to feed only two of us, which worked out quite successfully!
Tellement tellement si délicieux !
But don't take my word for it. Buy the book and find out for yourselves! It's worth every penny! Trust me on this!
Next week's recipe is going to be Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake. Yummo!!
