I was once famous for my Gratin Dauphinois. In the pre vegan era, of course. It’s one of those dishes you’ll have to say goodbye to. Because in my philosophy you should not try to make them with replacements because you always will keep longing for the ‘all devastating and delicious taste of the real deal’. But ladies and gentlemen, dear fans and followers, a fantastic new gratin has come into my arsenal. This Asian variant. It will have to sell itself. It doesn’t need me at all. But if you like gratin, you should try it. And why did I call it à la Dalat? Because I was once in this mountain village in Vietnam. A mountain village built by the French, to escape the heat of Ho Chi Minh, when they ‘took over the country for a while’. And since this is an Asian/Vietnamese variation on a French theme, the name seemed obvious to me.
