If youre afraid of butter, use cream!

The entirely marvellous Esmé asked me to write a guest post for her blog ‘The Recipe Hunter’ so I offer up to you a little light legend Grenoblois and a recipe for REAL Gratin Dauphinois.  Dig in, do!

      • Oh, they will be – and they will join all the other butter- and cream-clogged arteries I already have. On the plus side, those are all a result of so, so much good food, they have been well worth it.

    • I’ll raise my fork to that! We’ve discussed the importance before of not waging a war of attrition on yourself and I do absolutely believe it. Moderation in all things – that’s the key! Xxxxxxx

    Very nice! I shall attempt this sumptuous dish at the ruse of my galley upon completion! I may even attire myself in a completly frilly costume of said timeline just for fun! (Photos to come!)

    • It is so little effort for such a luscious payback … I hope you will enjoy it. All you need to follow is a good cognac 😉 The costume is quite pirate-like so I think it would be entirely appropriate for your galley! Photos? Yes please!!!

    • Ha! Save it for high days and holidays and follow my advice to revert immediately afterwards to a fruit and lettuce diet for many days! Xx

  18. your very title has reminded me of THE famous Julia Child – another American(Cali gal!) who lived in Paris… what a great lady!!!(almost 1,90m!) – you may have watched the movie dedicated to her life with THE exceptional Meryl Streep & Amy Adams… 🙂

    unfortunately no butter, no cream for I’ve been intolerant to both gluten and dairy for several years, et… si je fais des écarts, je les ressens “grave”, hélas!!!

    • It is a Julia Child quote … I love her and adored Meryl Streep’s portrayal in the movie. Food intolerances are a note there is no doubt but I know from following your delicious foodie pics on Facebook that you find many things to compensate 🙂
