These potatoes were oh so good, in such an oh so bad way. I had dinner plans for Saturday night with some girlfriends. A new restaurant in town. I checked out the menu online Saturday afternoon. You see, I find that when I'm out to dinner with the girls, there's a lot of chatting, and a lot of wine, and no time to really read the menu, so I look ahead of time. Call me a foodie-geek. Whatever. Hopefully you can relate.
Anyway, I immediately gravitated toward the diver scallops. Served with a potato, bacon and leek gratin. Unfortunately, I just ate an amazing potato gratin for dinner Friday night, and then again for (an early!) lunch on Saturday. Can I really order this dinner with MORE potato gratin. More potatoes, more cream, more cheese... I did it. We'll call it research. My, well, Dorie's gratin BLEW away this restaurant's version. My husband declared it one of the best things he's ever eaten. It was goooood!
