Has anyone ever made Aligot ?
I read about "aligot" in a guide to bistros in Paris, as a regional specialty in the Lozere region of France. It's basically garlic and cheese mashed potates. Here is a link:
Has anyone one ever had this or made it? It looks un appetizing, but It sounds delicious.
lol, that picture doesn't do it justice.
it's rich and creamy and delicious. i've served it in fingerling potato "skins", and it's to die for with a nice dry white wine. the garlic is optional (depending on the town) and the right cheese is critical.
Yes! Never knew what it was called (one of my dinnermates ordered for us), but I had it in an Auvergne-style restaurant and it was definitely to die for. Buttery, cheesy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I followed your link and doubt I could find the cheese here, but if you can --go for it.
Yes, I have made it. It was on the menu. After the potatoes (yukons for their golden color) are riced, add the remaining ingredients over the stove, and stir like a maniac, to bring out the glutens in the potato, giving it the thick, gooey consistency.
