Le Suquet Laguiole - FRANCE

The potato waffle

"A trip to Peru opened my eyes to the incredible number of different varieties of potatoes which exist. To prolong the memory of my visit, I hit on the idea of creating a dessert made from this famous tuber" recalls Sébastien Bras.

Having abandonned the idea of cultivating  the exotic varieties which he brought back from the Andes but which had never experienced a taste of Aveyron, Sébastien decided that the challenge should take shape exclusively in the kitchen. And what a shape! A wavy tuile biscuit, the result of layering several fine slices of potato and then delicately baked on an undulating mould, created by his grandfather, ever ready to beat out some metal. A beurre noisette cream of extraordinary finesse, underscored by a salted butter caramel crowns this dessert, which today has become one of the leading signature dishes on the menu.
