Mushroom Potato Galette Recipe Recipe

Mushroom Potato Galette Recipe

05.12.14 by Jackie

Sometimes the simplest things make the most delicious dish. For this vegetarian recipe, I only used 3 ingredients plus seasonings and tried to showcase them in one easy dish. Red potatoes from my garden, button mushrooms and ghee (clarified butter). Very thinly sliced potatoes were arranged into a galette and stuffed with mushrooms. That's all. I also flavored the ghee with oregano and seasoned the potatoes with salt and white pepper.

If you check out my Instagram account, you'll see multiple photos of my gardening experiences, the dishes I prepare for the family and of course, baby Aria. I upload them to Instagram on a daily basis. If you like it, don't hesitate to follow me PhamFataleCom.

It's amazing how easy it is to grow potatoes: bury the potatoes into the soil 3 weeks before the last "frost" date. For the Bay Area, I usually wait until late March. Remember to water regularly. You'll be able to harvest the first potatoes when the flowers open up. Check back often; the main part of the plants should be pulled once the foliage has died.

Crispy Potato Flower Recipe Recipe

Crispy Potato Flower Recipe

11.08.12 by Jackie

The preparation of this visually striking potato dish is fairly easy if you own a mandoline. Very-thinly-sliced potatoes are parboiled, then brushed with a butter and oil mixture. The slices are then stacked in individual ramekins to mimic flower petals.

It’s an elegant and innovative way to have potatoes as a part of your Thanksgiving table. With my first cookbook on shelves very soon (it's due out on December 18th), I'm going to be posting a lot of potato dishes that didn't make into to the book. If you’re interested, you can pre-order it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble!

Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

Hasselback Potatoes

11.09.10 by Jackie

Hasselback potatoes are a variation on roasted potatoes. The potatoes have a crispy outer skin with a delicious, soft inside. The cooking technique isn't different from common baked potatoes, with the exception of being thinly sliced into an accordion shape.

A blend of butter and garlic creates a crunchy outer crust that is perfectly seasoned. To guarantee that the potatoes are cooked through, I parboiled them for a few minutes, cut them into a fan shape, dried them in the oven, then smeared them with a generous amount of garlic-flavored butter.

The accordion potatoes have a fancy presentation, but really, the dish isn't complicated at all. I'm thinking of serving hasselback potatoes for Thanksgiving this year instead of the roasted potatoes I typically make. As an added bonus, they go great with meat or poultry, making them perfect for turkey day.

Lyonnaise Potatoes Recipe

Lyonnaise Potatoes

03.16.10 by Jackie

Pommes de terre lyonnaises is a crisp, yet tender potato dish. The potatoes are parboiled for faster cooking before being sautéed in butter. Sliced caramelized onions and parsley are added to the dish for color and a mild contrast of flavor. These potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to meat. I recently served them with lamb chops.

Lyonnaise potatoes originated in the city of Lyon which is located in East-central France in the region called Rhône-Alpes. The region is famous for being one of the main centers of French gastronomy. It has produced several beloved French dishes, such as coq au vin and marrons glacés. I haven't made a lot of dishes from Lyon in the past, but that will soon change. Bon appétit, and stay tuned!

Happy Bastille Day! Recipe

Happy Bastille Day!

07.14.09 by Jackie


Today is Bastille Day, the French equivalent of the 4th of July. While I was living in France, every year we would go to the Eiffel Tower in the evening and watch the fireworks. Food is not an integral part of traditional Bastille Day celebrations, but since I am so far from my homeland, preparing my favorite French recipes is probably the best way to connect with my roots and my culture. And of course there's YouTube as well. Though you can't be at our dinner table tonight, I hope you enjoy the pics!
