- 750g baby new potatoes
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 3 sprigs of thyme
- 100g Comté, grated
- 100g Gruyère, grated
- 100g Emmental, grated
- 2tsp cornflour
- 1 garlic clove
- 350ml dry white wine
- a small glass of Calvados or kirsch
Heat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Tip the potatoes into a large roasting tin, drizzle over the olive oil and toss with the thyme and a pinch of sea salt. Roast for 20-25 minutes until cooked through and golden.
Meanwhile, mix together the cheese and cornflour. Rub the base of a pan with the garlic then discard. Add the wine to the pan and heat until simmering gently. The trick is to add the cheese gradually, stirring all the time – like making risotto. As it melts, add another handful of cheese.
Once all the cheese has been incorporated and the mixture has thickened, stir in the Calvados. Serve as a dip with the potatoes.
