Can you describe what the person looked like? That might help us foodies identify who it might have been. I'm thinking of that Irish Chef who has the show on PBS, but I cant remember her name...

Thanks, Aunt Bea! I love watching her show and Pati (the Mexican chef). Oh, and Andres (sp) the Norwegian chef!

Would Ann Burrell [Food Network] be your chef? Her recipe is for Potatoes Pave[Cake]
Well I know the chef wasn't Ann Burrell. But I'll check the potato pave recipe. Thanks!

Could it have possibly been Laura Calder?

This sounds a lot like the recipe you describe:
Potatoes Anna : Recipes : Cooking Channel

And if that isn't the one, she has several other classic potato recipes in this video:

Love Laura Calder (and her recipes). I have made several (her Tuscany milk pork roast is one of my favs) of her recipes my go-to recipes. Steve--I think you found it--she weighs the potatoes down. The music in the background during her French Food at Home show is very distinctive, so if you can't remember her name, maybe you would remember the music?

Dauphinois sounds so similar and SO easy. You really can't go wrong. Look it up and try it. it is one of my favorite potato recipes because it is excellent with Duck, Chicken or Lamb and EVERYONE adores it. Also, you really don't need anything else but the meat unless you choose to.

YES!!! Potatoes Anna is it! Thank you!!! I'm grilling some lamb chops tonight & this sounds so much better than boiled potatoes & without being too rich. Some sauteed green beans & I'm done!
