Method

Either Vitelotte potatoes or a firm non-floury type such as new kidney potatoes should be used for this preparation. Cook them in salted water, peel them whilst still hot then cut into fairly thick slices.

Place in a shallow pan, cover with boiling cream, season them and cook on a hot stove to reduce the cream, shaking the pan frequently.

Finish with a little more cream at the last moment.
