    Comments about Le Creuset The Classic Potato Gratin:

    Great basic recipe. I use 1/2 as much cold butter in place of the room temp butter to grease the dish.

    Developed for the 3 1/10 qt. au gratin
    Serves 8

    This is about as uncomplicated as a gratin can get, and yet it is simply delicious. Now that creme fraiche is available in most good supermarkets, we hope you become acquainted with it. This recipe is a great place to start.

    Try to find an imported Gruyere or Emmenthaler cheese. And don’t overdo the rosemary; it's perfect with the potatoes, but it's strong.

    Using the slicing blade of a food processor or a mandoline for the potatoes ensures that all the slices are the same thickness and will cook at the same rate. If you must peel and slice the potatoes ahead of time, be sure to immediately immerse them in cool water. When ready to assemble the gratin, drain and pat them dry with towels.
