About this deal

Rimmed baking sheet It’s a good idea to place the skillet on a baking sheet before transferring it to the oven; it promotes even browning of the potatoes and catches any sizzling butter overflow. You need to trim the potatoes so they are about uniform in size, but don’t obsess over it. Using a paring or chef’s knife, remove the ends from each potato, then trim the sides so you end up with cylinders. It may seem like a lot of waste, especially if you are using round boiling potatoes, as opposed to oblong baking potatoes. But you can use the trimmings in mashed potatoes or soups.

This originally was in Gourmet's first cookbook, 1985. My kids call them angel potatoes. They are so wonderful, and to keep them that way, I make them once a year at Christmas. To make it, the potatoes are trimmed into cylinders (to ensure a neat and attractive shape), sliced and then layered into a skillet sizzling with clarified butter. The potatoes are first cooked on top of the stove, to sear and brown them on the bottom, then moved to the oven to bake until the slices in the center turn soft. After baking, the pan is inverted onto a platter and presented as a stunning, burnished cake of crunchy potato petals.Julia Child recommends waxy, low-starch boiling potatoes, such as round white potatoes, red potatoes or Yukon golds. When you use these, the potato slices remain in distinct coins as opposed to merging into a uniform cake. These slippery potato pieces make it harder to cut through the cake neatly after unmolding. It can easily fall apart. But the buttery flavor and satiny texture of the waxy potatoes are marvelous, making up for the precarious presentation. Pommes Anna was created in the mid-19th century by the chef Adolphe Dugléré at Café Anglais in Paris. It was most likely named after Anna Deslions, one of the café’s grandes cocottes, who is said to have entertained an international coterie of princes and other dignitaries in a private salon above the dining room. Bake the Second Part:Take off the weights and foil. Bake again until the potatoes are soft and the bottom is golden brown, about 20 more minutes. For the potatoes, you can use either waxy boiling potatoes or starchy baking potatoes, depending on the texture you’re after. Or, if you’d like, you can use a combination of the two.

When you’re ready to serve, simply take it out and follow the baking instructions in the recipe. What To Serve With Pommes Anna Use good butter: European-style butter with a high fat content (at least 82 percent) works best here because it contains less moisture than regular butter.Crisp frites, creamy gratins — the French do beautiful things with potatoes. And of all the magnificent potato dishes they make, pommes Anna is a classic, one that deserves more acclaim beyond France. My roommates called these fancy tater tots, but they were much more complex. Practically ethereal in their lightness, crisp on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, these were wonderful. Not having pastry tips on hand, we used the method of just scooping some of the mixture with a spoon and scraping it off with another spoon. I think a small cookie scoop would have yielded more uniform shapes and looked nicer. I'm looking forward to making these again for a special occasion. Preheat your oven to 395 F (200 C). Using two tablespoons of the butter generously grease a 1.5 liter casserole dish. Starting from the outside, arrange the apple slices over the almond cream, overlapping them tightly so that only about 1cm of the previous slice is visible. Make a complete circle then start another circle, overlapping the previous one. Repeat this operation until the tart is complete.

Add 3 tablespoons of the melted butter to a large heavy ovenproof skillet (about 21cm base diameter, or see our tip below. Swirl around to coat, then neatly arrange a layer of potato slices in the bottom of the pan – this will be the presentation side when it’s cooked, so take some time over it. Brush some more butter over the potatoes, seasoning generously as you go, then add another layer of slices. Repeat until the pan is full, reserving enough butter to brush onto a large square of foil.p>This is my wonderful old boy, Rama, a blue-point Siamese, who died when he was 20yrs old - excuse the old and much sellotaped photo:

A buttery cake composed of paper-thin slices of potato, pommes Anna is similar to potato gratin in the way it is layered and baked. But unlike a gratin, which is lightly browned on top and creamy soft all the way through, pommes Anna emerges from the oven with a tender, slippery interior and a crunchy golden crust. It is a gorgeous contrast in textures. A combination of milk and water in the choux pastry contributes flavor and aids in browning the pommes dauphine. Take It Out of the Pan: Shake the pan to see if the potato cake moves easily. If not, use a knife or spatula to help. Put a cutting board on top of the pan, hold it tight, and flip it over to get the potato cake out. Spread a layer on sauteed onion over the potatoes and sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Continue layering in this way, ending with a layer of potatoes.
