IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

I want to share a new potato dish that was shared to me by my dear friend Eliane from La Serviette Blanche in Cannes: Pommes de Terre Fondante. As Eliane is a trained chef, she shared that this dish is a must learn basic in French cooking classes. I love to talk to her about  food, it is a dream come thru for me. Friendship, food expertise and love for food all in one.

Quite a simple dish to assemble and a refreshing change and delicious compliment to any meat, poultry or fish dish  that you will  prepare. The potatoes come out of the oven tender in the inside, almost creamy, and  crisp on the outside.
