Culinary Tips

I love using potatoes as a base for scallop dishes, whether cubed and used in a corn, potato, and bacon hash, or simply mashed very smooth, they’re a great contrast to the savory and sweet pan-seared scallops.

A traditional French gratin is such a great addition to any meal. Thin sliced potatoes stacked and seasoned with just the right amount of cream and cheese. So many of the Swiss-style cheeses have an affinity for potatoes is a natural pairing. It’s great served as a side in an individual crock.
