"A very simple basic galette from one of our National supermarkets as part of a Christmas feast, though I think it is a dish you could serve at any time of the year. Also instead of red potatoes or desiree, you could use pontiacs. Preparation time could vary depending on whether you use a mandolin or food process or cut the potatoes with a knife."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200C or 180C fan forced.

Step 2

Brush a 20cm springform pan with melted and then combine the remaining butter and garlic in a small bowl.

Step 3

Peel potatoes and slice as thin as possible (would suggest a mandolin or food processor).

Step 4

Make a layer of potatoes in the base of the pan, overlapping slightly and brush with some garlic butter and season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Step 5

Repeat layers, brushing each with garlic butter and seasoning with the salt and pepper every couple of layers.

Step 6

When you have made the final layer, press down to compact the potato, before giving a final brush of butter.

Step 7

Stand pan on a baking tray, cover with foil and bake for 1 hour, uncover pan and cook for a further 30 minutes or until potato is tender and the top is a golden brown.

Step 8

Run a knife around the inside of the pan and release the sides and cut into wedges to serve.
