It may seem a simple dish, but aligot is the stuff you want sticking your ribs together on a cold, windy day. It's the best mash you'll ever taste.
Ingredients [Serves 4]
1kg of potatoes, boiled and finely mashed to a
· 100g of unsalted butter
· 250g crème fraîche
· 400g Tomme cheese, cut into thin strips
· Salt, pepper and two finely chopped cloves of garlic*
*The garlic blends more readily (and is less strong) if it is boiled and refreshed under cold water three times, then taken from its skin and mashed to a smooth paste with the back of a knife.
Sorry; I started eating this before I remembered to take the photograph. It was delicious.
