Classic French Gratin “Starcuisine Memories”


The potato gratin has always been a symbol of disput between all kind of culinary cuisines. There is simply no authentic gratin recipe. So we decided to call our “classic” potato gratin after a french recipe, learned and practiced by Moritz in his former education and work as a starchef.

The differences:

-The french cuisine does not like cheese on the Gratin Dauphinois, whereas on the Gratin Savoyard, it is more tolerable, whereas creme needs to be left out. We took the best out of both !

What counts to us is the taste ! So enjoy !


Der Kartoffelgratin ist immer wieder Gegenstand kulinarischer Auseinandersetzungen, denn es gibt kein authentisches Rezept. Die Französische Küche sieht Käse auf dem Gratin Dauphinois nicht sehr gerne, auf dem Gratin Savoyard wird es jedoch toleriert (hierbei aber ohne Sahne). Uns Interessiert das recht wenig denn der Geschmack ist das was zählt, dieser ist garantiert mit unserem Gratin Rezept. Lasst es euch Munden.
