If we oversimplify we can say that the Hachis Parmentier is the French version of the British Cottage Pie. But, like in all good French recipe, there are a few twists that make the dish so unique:
- Mash is a little smoother with the addition of butter
- Cheese is added on top of the creamy mash for a gratin effect that is just out of this world.
- Meat is coarser and flavoured with herbs making it richer.
Last but not least, our Hachis recipe is derived from Chef Sebastien own mother who used to be a restaurateur in the French South-West region. She used to make the Hachis Parmentier at the end of the week with all the leftovers from the restaurant with Beef, Pork, Carrots, Onion, and Herbs for that extra bit of character.
