Tartiflette with Cod

dinner last night.
tartiflette with cod.
traditional tartiflette is made
with potatoes, bacon, onion and
reblochon..a cheese from savoie france..
will just came back from an outward bound
week there and the kids were able 
to try it!

i got the recipe from 
Home Made Winter.
the author,
yvette van boven..born in ireland,
now spends her time between paris 
and amsterdam. i'm thinking i need 
her first book, Home Made as well
as Home Made Summer to add 
to my cookbook collection.

tartiflette with cod...
try it.
it's simply delicious.

here is the recipe...

8 firm potatoes..peeled.
3 white onions..peeled.
butter for greasing
salt and pepper
2 tbs fresh thyme leaves
9 oz (250 grams) Comte' grated
9 oz (250 grams) cod fillets, cut in squares
about 1 3/4 cups (300 ml) heavy cream
(i used creme fraiche)
pinch of paprika
( i didn't)

preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F).
slice the potatoes as thinly as possible
preferably with a mandoline. (i need!)
do the same with the onions.

butter an oven dish.

make layers: start with the potatoes,
then onions, salt and pepper, thyme, some cheese
some fish;
continue until you've used all
(trying to end with potato and reserving some cheese
and thyme for the top.

cover the dish with aluminum foil and place
on baking sheet (in case of dripping)

bake the tartiflette for 20 min.
remove the foil and bake for another
15 min. unti golden brown and bubbly.
(i also put mine under the broiler
for a few minutes)

seriously try this.
you'll sound all french
when your family asks what's for 

bon appetite!
