According to the Orient Express website, pommes cocotte are sautéed potatoes.

Pommes Chateau? Wouldn't that roughly translate into home potatoes (home fries)?

A cocotte is cut into an oval (like an American football) about the size of an olive ... chateau is similarly shaped but larger (see here for pics and more info). They can be cooked in various ways ....
