Mini-Raclette à la pomme de terre

Mini-Raclette à la pomme de terre


4 portions

Ingredients

  • 60 g (2 oz) Comtomme cheese
  • 3 or 4 small La Ratte potatoes
  • 2 slices of Viande des Grisons
  • 1/2 shallot
  • 20 g (1 1/2 tbsp.) castor sugar
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) Pinot gris (white wine)
  • 100 ml (4 oz) kirsch
  • 12 g (1/2 oz) gelatine leaves

Preparation

Tip: once a step is done, you can click on it to cross it out and go to the next one.

  • In a double boiler, melt the cheese and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water, being careful not to break the skin.
  • Once cooked, let them cool completely.
  • While the potatoes are cooling, cut the Viande des Grisons into four strips of 1.5 cm (1/2 inch) by 10 cm (4 inches).
  • Roll the strips around an ovenproof greased metallic tube (or small pastry cutter) and bake until hard.
  • Set aside the twists of Viande des Grisons.
  • Finely chop the shallot and sweat it for a while in a dash of oil.
  • Add the sugar and continue cooking on low heat (do not allow to change colour).
  • Moisten with the Pinot gris and reduce until no liquid remains. Refrigerate the shallot compote until serving.
  • In a skillet, reduce 100 ml (4 oz) of kirsch by half.
  • Add the previously prepared gelatine leaves.
  • Refrigerate until set, and then stir with a fork.
  • Cut the potatoes in half and use a spoon to scoop out some of the insides.
  • Place some kirsch jelly in the potato (not too much, otherwise it will overpower the fruity flavour of the cheese).
  • Place a quarter of the melted, room-temperature cheese on top of the kirsch jelly.
  • Place a thin layer of shallot compote on the cheese and top with the twist of dried Viande des Grisons.
