I have a new favorite side. It's Pommes Darphin. The trouble is, I can only get it with roast duck.



OMG that looks insanely good.  Mrs. Metro now has a new "assignment"!

    They are Hash Browns! I looked at several recipes and not one mentioned duck (fat).

      As with most Cuisine Francaise their preparation is a bit more "involved" than hash browns as is their proper presentation.
       
      The first time I went to Paris i couldn't stop thinking "Holy Sh*t!" with every first few fork-fulls.

        My favorite sides are those that use fresh vegetables. Spring-creamed garden peas or creamed new potatoes & garden peas; wilted lettuce.  Summer- fresh green beans(cooked long & slow the southern way) with fresh tomatoes & raw onion: cucumbers & onions in cider/sugar dressing: fresh corn on the cob or creamed corn.

          I LOVE cheese, in fact, I think I may have too much over the course of growing-up!
           
          With that said, gotta' have the mac n' cheese ! I've seen people cook it with crock pots, anyone know how that works? o_O

            You can't beat a good curly fry! Some of the best I've had have been in the States. I wouldn't touch beetroot with a barge pole though!

                They are hash browns in the same way that Dr. Pepper is Hennessy Paradis Imperial Cognac. And if duck fat isn't mentioned then the recipe writer isn't French. According to the Larousse Gastronomique Pomme Darphin, named for the chef who created the dish, a cake of grated or julienned potatoes is first fried in clarified butter or duck fat on both sides and then finished in the oven until it is browned on both sides but soft in the middle. Duck fat is more commonly used because of the flavor imparted.

                  My new favorite side is smoked baked beans with big pieces of pulled pork in them.
