How to prepare Bruno Barbieri's potato gateau recipe

  1. First, put the cream in a saucepan together with the aromatic herbs tied together with string. Then put the black and pink pepper in a small tea infuser and add it to the cream together with a pinch of salt. Heat over medium heat until reduced , then remove all flavourings.
  2. Cut the potatoes into 3-4 mm thick slices and set aside. Cut the fontina into small pieces.
  3. Butter a baking dish suitable for cooking in the oven and begin to assemble the gateau : a little cream on the bottom, then the potatoes slightly overlapping. Pour more cream, a little fontina, a little parmesan and, if desired, other fresh aromatic herbs (such as thyme). Continue until you run out of ingredients. The last layer should be formed only with potatoes and parmesan.
  4. Finally, press lightly with your hands and cover with the cream. Cook at 180°C until the potatoes have absorbed all the cream and compacted. Let it cool before serving.

Bruno Barbieri serves it with a cheese fondue, dried tomato sauce, parsley oil and a sprinkling of nutmeg but we can guarantee you that it is also excellent on its own.
