The first time I had potatoes Gratin, they were homemade by mom. I thought it was one of the most delicious side dishes I had ever had. Natural carbs with gooey cheese, butter, and crustiness from the oven, (plus other ingredients) is the perfect combination for comfort food.
As you may have guessed, the technique was originated in France. Dauphinois is just a term referring to the French region of Dauphiné.
I am a fan of color. It is my biggest inspiration in my photography, so when I found this colorful recipe of Gratin Dauphinois, I was stoked. I also love the way it was visually recorded by, Béa, one of my favorite food photographers. Her secret ingredient: pink turnips.
