This is my first participation in French Fridays with Dorie! My brother-in-law from Boston emailed me an article about FFwD last week and, well, it was pretty much my inspiration for starting a food blog altogether. I’ve made some Dorie Greenspan recipes via Smitten Kitchen, but did not have any of her cookbooks until Tuesday afternoon, when Around My French Table arrived on my doorstep!
I wanted to start right away, so I chose the Potatoes Gratin for my first official Dorie-dish and for dinner tonight. I must say, de-LISH! I halved the recipe, since there’s only two of us to eat it and we’re going away for the weekend so I didn’t want a lot of leftovers hanging around, but I needn’t have worried – I had two helpings myself for dinner and I have a feeling we’ll be finishing the rest tomorrow for lunch before we take off!
