Porterhouse: potato gratin, roasted brussels sprouts & romesco sauce
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 3 bay leaves
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme, plus more to finish
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Unsalted butter
- 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for broiling
- 2 roasted and peeled Red Bell Peppers
- 1 Heirloom Tomato
- 2 Fresno Chile, deseeded

- 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
- 2T Sherry Vinegar
- 1/2 C Olive Oil
- 2 T finely chopped Parsley
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a saucepan, heat up the cream with the bay leaves, thyme, garlic, nutmeg and some salt and pepper.
- While the cream is heating up, butter a casserole dish. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bay leaves and thyme. Pour the heated cream into a large bowl with the potato slices. Mix gently to coat the potatoes. Dust the Parmesan over the potatoes. Season the mix with a little bit of salt and pepper. Mix to gently incorporate. Spoon a little bit of the cream into the bottom of the casserole dish. Then spoon the potatoes in. Level out the potatoes for uniform cooking time. Pour the remaining cream at the bottom of the bowl over the top. Top with some Parmesan and fresh thyme leaves. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, but pull back one corner for the steam to escape. Bake for 40 minutes.
- Blend everything In the bowl of a large food processor or blender.
- Add the roasted red peppers, diced tomatoes, sherry vinegar and a good pinch of kosher salt, black pepper, and smoked paprika.
- Pulse several times, add almond flour, then olive oil.
- Blend until you achieve the desired consistency.
- Stir in parsley. If you'll be using it as a dip, you can leave it a little thicker or blend it extra if using it as a sauce.
