"This is a recipe I have been holding onto for some time, and I do so want to try. It does sound really good and I am hoping to make this to serve at Christmas, as it looks like it will pair well with both meat and vegetarian mains."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).

Step 2

Line base of a 25cm (top measurement) ovenproof frying pan with baking paper.

Step 3

Place the butter, brandy, rosemary, thyme, 1 bay leaf and garlic into a small saucepan; stir over a low heat until butter is melted; remove from heat & season with sea salt flakes and ground white pepper, or salt and pepper to your taste.

Step 4

Generously brush some butter on base and side of the pan; place remaining bay leaves on base.

Step 5

Using a sharp knife, mandoline or V-slicer, cut potatoes into 2mm slices; pat slices dry with paper towel; (Do not be tempted to do potato slicing ahead of the recipe as potatoes may go brown).

Step 6

Place a single layer of potato, slightly overlapping, into the pan then brush with a little butter; continue layering remaining potato and butter until all the potato slices are used.

Step 7

Generously brush the top layer of potatoes with butter.

Step 8

Press a sheet of baking paper onto potato; press down to slightly compress potatoes; cover pan with foil.

Step 9

Bake potato for 45 minutes; remove the foil & using a metal spatula, press down on potato to gently compress it.

Step 10

Bake potato, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until top is crisp and deeply golden, and potato is tender.

Step 11

Turn out on a warm serving plate; scatter with extra rosemary leaves, if desired.

Step 12

Cut as you would a cake and serve.
