what are chateau potatoes?

Chateau Potatoes are the traditional accompaniment to a chateaubriand steak but they are delicious with all main courses!

In some restaurants these potatoes are cut into a tournée shape, which is basically into a long, eight faceted oval shape. Potatoes cocotte are basically the same but cut even smaller!

I have also heard that chateau potatoes were a side dish on the Titanic, where they were cut into slices with eight sides to create a jewel effect.

With both of these methods, the potatoes look pretty, but it can be a waste of potatoes and take a long time. Instead, I have peeled potatoes of the same size to get the uniform effect. The easiest way to get potatoes the same size is to use new potatoes.

Of course, you can cut them like this if you want to. This would be lovely for a special meal for two and any leftover potato from shaping can be cooked and used to make cheese and onion potato cakes.

And, I know there is a lot of butter in this recipe, but it is for special occasions. Feel free to reduce the amount if you prefer.

first recipe

Normally, I wouldn’t peel baby or new potatoes but in this recipe the potatoes are roasted, so they will get a crispier outside from peeling. To save time, if you are feeding a crowd, just wash the potatoes and dry them well so that the butter can crisp up the skin.

Lay the potatoes on kitchen paper to dry off the excess water.

Add the butter, oil, peeled whole garlic cloves, seasoning and potatoes to a heavy based pan that can go from the hob to the oven.

Cook over a medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, lightly stirring from time to time, until they are lightly golden all over.

Baking time

Preheat the oven to 190 C/375 F/170 FAN/Gas 5 and place the potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes or until crisp and tender.

Remove the garlic from the dish.

Put them in a serving dish and pour over the butter from the pan.

Scatter over the parsley and serve.

second recipe

We’ve entered the second entrees of Titanic’s 1st class dinner menu! I thought I would start with the side dishes first. And, there’s no better start than these golden and crispy Chateau potatoes. These were a country favorite of French nobility and chefs of the day used to cut the potatoes into eight-sided jewel shapes. I’m not that talented so I decided to use an apple corer to cut the potatoes into cylinder shapes and then rounded the corners with a vegetable peeler. Yes, it was a bit of work but I had fun with it. Truth be told, the potatoes taste just as good cut into wedges or chunks. I used baking potatoes for this dish because I think they stay fluffy on the inside while crisping up nicely on the outside. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
6 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Peel potatoes. Instead of cutting eight sided jewel shapes we cut the potatoes into thick, evenly shaped wedges.

2. Place butter, oil, and rosemary in large, rimmed baking dish.

3. Set pan in 425F oven for 2 to 3 minutes or until butter is sizzling.

4. Pat potatoes dry; place in heated pan and stir to coat with butter mixture.

5. Bake in 425F oven, stirring occasionally, for 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown.

6. Season with salt and pepper.

third recipe

Chateau potatoes are a simple buttery potato dish, and they were popular back in the 1900s.

The recipe is actually really simple to make, but they were always thought of as a bit fancy. They were served in First Class on the Titanic, apparently, as well as other posh cruise ships – the sort of trip where you’d get your glad rags on for dinner each night!

I can just imagine someone taking a long boat journey across the Atlantic, wearing a beautiful dress, and sitting down to a special meal including these chateau potatoes. They’re easy and cheap to make, but they still feel a bit special.

And even though chateau potatoes are a pretty retro dish these days, they’re just as tasty as ever.

Chateau potatoes are very straightforward – it doesn’t take much to make a potato worth eating.

First, little new potatoes are braised in oodles of melted garlic butter, until they’re just starting to crisp up.

Then, they’re popped in the oven to roast. The golden brown crust that forms is unbelievable, infused with that garlic butter flavour. The middles are soft and fluffy.

All you need is a sprinkling of fresh herbs on top to finish it off beautifully.

Oh, and don’t forget to drizzle over any excess melted butter… wouldn’t want it to go to waste.
