Top Review by Lorac

Ahhh! Memories of our favorite French restaurant back in Mass. A subtle layering of flavors that blend beautifuly without masking each other. I made 1/2 the recipe and and let the dish sit for 10 minutes before seving so that the liquid was absorbed. My only suggestion is Chef Claude's special ingredient for potatoes - use finely ground white pepper. Great recipe Junebug!
