• 750g potatoes, peeled and cut into matchsticks, use a mandolin if possible
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tin of anchovies in oil
  • 150ml of double cream
  • 10g butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. Heat oven to Fan 180C/200C/Gas 6. Peel your potatoes and then using a mandolin to save time, cut into matchsticks.
  2. Start to layer your dish. Begin with a potatoes, then a layer of sliced onion and then drape over half of the anchovies. My Mother always said, don’t be mean with them. Season with a little salt and pepper and then repeat the layers, ending with potatoes on top. Pour over the cream.
  3. Dot with knobs of butter and pour over the oil from the tin of anchovies. Cover with tin foil and bake in the over for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the tin foil and bake uncovered for 30 minutes until golden.
