I’ve blogged before about how great food minds tend to think alike, particularly this time of year.
This time, columnist Jan Roberts-Dominguez wrote about gratins for the holidays and furnished five recipes for the newspaper’s weekly food section, A la Carte. In true Jan fashion, she related the dish’s origins and explained not only how to make it but why it’s so delicious.
Right on that column’s heels came a story from the Detroit Free Press on the same topic with the basic concept broken down into four easy steps that can be applied to virtually any vegetable-sauce-topping combination. See that article on our Holiday 101 page. I also tacked on two Free Press recipes using vegetables — Brussels sprouts and celery root — that Jan didn’t tackle.
