Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Grated potatoes and leek (Hashbrown)

Français.
This is a very nice recipe for the summer. It comes from Lorraine, the region of my youth. Easy to do and delicious (but don't try to save some for later, it doesn't like to wait and be re-heated. Serve it with a lettuce, very simply, or with some meat.


Ingredients (for 2 people)
400g potatoes
1 leek
1 onion
Crème fraîche
Salt and pepper, oil to fry

Preparation
Peel the leek (take away the first leaves) and boil 15 min into boiling water. Cut it in strips.
Peel and grate the potatoes and onion. Press to get rid of the juice. Add the leek, the crème and the egg, salt and pepper. Make some « pancakes » and fry them both sides in hot water in a frying pan.

You should make small portions; it will be easier to fry than larger ones.

Bon appétit!!!
