From the Languedoc region

This dish is so French – and so typical of the northern part of Languedoc, not far from where the famous roquefort blue cheese is made. The use of duck fat to cook the potatoes is essential for the authentic flavour. It is available from specialist butchers and good delicatessens.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
salt
freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups mixed green leaves
60g roquefort cheese, broken into small pieces
4 shelled walnuts, very roughly chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons duck fat

Method

  1. Place half the garlic in a large mixing bowl with a little salt and pepper and the vinegar and whisk together well. Whisk in the oil gradually. Add the green leaves, cheese and walnuts to the bowl and toss everything together gently.
  2. Grate the potatoes onto a plate and pat dry with kitchen paper. Tip into a bowl with the remaining garlic and the chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Heat the duck fat in a 20 cm frying pan. When the fat is hot add the potato mixture to the pan to form a large galette around 1 cm thick. Press with the back of a spoon or fork to flatten and cook for a few minutes. Carefully turn the galette over and cook the other side (to turn the galette, slide it onto a plate, then turn the plate over and slide the galette back into the pan.
  4. Cut the cooked galette in half or quarters and divide between 2 plates. Serve with the dressed salad.
