Maui Prime has clearly established itself as the best place in West Maui to procure gourmet foods. The wide selection of gourmet pantry items, wines, prime meats and seafood, and super customer service are only some of the elements that make shopping at Maui Prime a pleasure. Working behind the counters are two honest-to-goodness chefs, Cary Buttons and Will Hawkins. Both are eager to help customers in any way they can; from choosing the best cuts of meat and seafood, to sharing insights on the best methods of preparing everything they sell.

After placing my holiday Turducken and Free Range Organic Turkey order, I asked Chef Will if he would share his favorite holiday side dish recipe with What’s Cooking Maui readers. Knowing you would want something simple but special, he offered the following method of preparing Potatoes Dauphinoise. The famous dish was purportedly created to coaxed young “Dauphine,” later known as King Henry II, to eat his vegetables. As if we’d ever need coaxing to eat potatoes!

Chef Will’s Potatoes Dauphinoise Fit for a King

6-7 peeled potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold
2 pints cream
Salt
One clove crushed garlic

Peel  potatoes then slice 1/8 inch thick using a mandoline, if available. It’s important to keep the slices uniform for even cooking.

Do not rinse the potatoes after slicing, although many recipes suggest doing so. This keeps the starch on the potatoes and helps to set the dish.

Pour cream into a bowl and salt to taste. This is your only chance to season the dish so just put in a little salt at a time, tasting after each addition. What’s important- don’t over or under salt.

Crush a clove of garlic and rub it on the bottom and sides of the 9 x 13 baking pan.

Layer the potato slices in the pan evenly and up the sides. Pour the salted cream over the top.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees, 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes to brown. Let stand 15 minutes prior to serving for dish to set-up.

Creative add-ons for the dish include sprinkling with Gruyere Cheese before final browning, adding some grated nutmeg to the cream mixture, or including thinly sliced onion with the potatoes. Here’s your chance to be creative.  Just be sure to follow the basic instructions for a simple but delicious addition to your holiday table!

    Involving me and my husband we’ve owned extra MP3 gamers over time than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (common & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few ages I’ve settled down to one line of gamers.
