I've been making these for a decade, my preferred alternative to french fries. They're sliced potatoes layered either with an infused cream or flavorful stock. You can cook them in a flat dish and then fry them, but I've always liked the way the layers look when I bake it in a deep bread pan. I...
A famous French classic, the Gratin Dauphinois. First invented in France to convince people that potatoes were in fact a delicious food, and now a long term restaurant staple. Mine is not entirely classical in the sense that I use cheese, the traditional French one contains only cream. I have...
Sweet crab and mild nutty tasting Emmental contrast with the slightly sour Kefir yoghurt in this simple starter. You could use cream instead of yoghurt if you prefer. The mixture is enough to fill two scallop shells.
Ingredients (makes 2)
15g Emmental grated
1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper...
Prep time: 40 minutes, which includes browning the onions, but you can do other prep as that occurs.

3 heads of garlic, cloves separated but not peeled

1 teaspoon chopped...
Mulate's has several locations. I have only been to the NOLA location. Even though it is across the street from a convention center, the food is pretty good. This recipe is one we really like. I warn you it is very rich. The crab meat used is from blue crabs, but I'm sure other jumbo lump will...
I have to confess that this is one of our favourite recipes. We have had to adapt it over the years, to take into account that I can no longer have dairy, but this is the full veggie version which makes for a great Christmas Day meal. There is no definite weights needed for this recipe, so mix...
